Loading Docs Workshop – Documentary makers connect!


LOADING DOCS has kicked off to a tremendous start with our filmmakers converging in Auckland at Colab for a weekend of development to define media strategies, crowd-funding techniques and for each team to hone their short docos.

Anna Dean joined us to advise on media strategy both traditional and social channels. Anna is an independent PR maven with a passion for arts, culture and entertainment. She brings a wealth of experience on films such as publicist for The Dark Horse and Two Little Boys and Gardening with Soul (Best NZ Doco Moas 2013). Find out more about her work here.  #ohyesannadean

Our second special guest Kathryn Burnett award-winning screenwriter and creative training consultant spent time with the teams to further focus their documentary stories. This session was full of activity, inspiration and deep thought. Check out Kathryn’s work on her website.

Executive Producers Anna Jackson and Julia Parnell worked with the teams to further define their plans for crowd-funding and production and after two intense days together we all came away with huge enthusiasm for the LOADING DOCS collection for 2015.

Thank you to all who came and contributed.

Life about to get very busy in the Loading Docs office, we are counting down to the crowd-funding phase on March 2nd. Stand by for more info soon!
