Welcome to the filmmaking forums!

My name is Jody, and I serve as editor for Student Filmmakers Magazine. I've been editing educational filmmaking articles, interviews, and how-to's for StudentFilmmakers for about 15 years now, so I'm like a human, walking "Index" or perpetual "Table of Contents" that is always growing and that loves to share. So when you ask your question here, I can't help but refer to some awesome informational, educational, and inspirational Documentary Articles and Documentary Books that can help get you started in the right direction.

What kinds of documentaries would you like to produce, film/edit, and show?

What are your documentary filmmaking goals for 2021?

:) :) :)
