Currently editing a film I spent this past year shooting in Libya called BURNING GREEN. How to produce, direct, write,edit, and market documentaries This would include which camera is best for a particular project and aspects of how to approach story telling of your documentary. Also, it is becoming even more critical to have a buyer at a major network such as the BBC (they are called Programme Editors there) to interact with during your production. It's really important to know the market and the major players to know who you are.
Over 30 years of working on various aspects of documentaries with my primary function today of shooting and directing them.
You can find out a great deal about my films and background at my website at www.creativehat.com
Also, several of my films are on Google Video and can be found by going there and typing Mickey Grant in search. They include my latest film, INJECTION which is 80 minutes and shot on HDV. Also, THE CU CHI TUNNELS, which previously was distributed by BBC Worldwide and has played on major broadcssters in over 50 countries.
In the past I've been a member of many organizations such as NABET union but don't find it necessary in today's market place.
