MEET OUR 2017 DOCS IN PROGRESS FELLOWS "Docs In Progress is pleased to announce the participants in our fifth annual Fellowship Program. Selected through a competitive application process, these ten Fellows represent a variety of professional backgrounds and are at different stages of their careers and their current documentaries-in-progress.
Their films range in topic: deeply personal family legacies, anthropological explorations about the keepers of cultural traditions, insights into how different Americans view the current state of politics; stories of unlikely activists fighting to save their communities; and a historical documentary about a song which rose up out of church basements to become an anthem of the civil rights era.
The Fellows will participate as a cohort in a series of monthly meetings from February through September 2017 where they will come together to share and hold each other accountable for progress on these current projects, and have a facilitated discussion with each other and with special guest speakers about issues related to the documentary landscape, work/life balance, and the creative process. They will also attend the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival."
I am very excited to officially announce that I have been selected as a 2017 Docs In Progress Fellow.
What does this mean, you ask? Basically, it means that I, along with a great pool of talented other selected fellows have been given the opportunity to have access to resources, including each other to help get er' done. We all have visions of a fully developed and compelling visual story that will take the form of a documentary. Docs in Progress has done this in many ways for others with this vision before me. My first meeting is tomorrow and I can't wait! I have a few more things that I am working on and am going to put all my universal positive vibes out there that I will have more good news in the near future. Eventually, I will get back to the Aruba trip, but I am not sure if it will be this week. But I sure wish I was still there...
