PORTFOLIO/ THE STRUGGLE BEHIND
A documentary about making a documentary.
My biggest consideration about my documentary was if the final edited film really even was a documentary? I have trimmed the footage down so much that it is debatable whether it is a documentary or not. But how do you define a documentary? You can find several strict guidelines that will tell you how to make a documentary. However, I let myself get inspired by Errol Morris thought about documentaries. Errol Morris says in an interview that a documentary can be just how you want it to be. There should not be any “documentary police” that will come and tell me what is right or wrong in the documentary world.
