A HELPING HAND
Award-winning filmmaker Col Spector helps you transform your documentary idea or rough-cut into a film that an audience want to see.
If you're struggling with a documentary for film festivals, cinema or a short documentary for a charity then get in touch with Col Spector to arrange a one-to-one session on Skype or in person.
Col can work with you on:
> seeing whether your idea could actually work as a film that an audience would pay to see or really care to watch
> working out the best way to make your film in order to engage with an audience
> helping your film's edit if it doesn't work - to transform it into a film that does
"My consultations start by ensuring that your idea really works as a film that an audience is likely to want to watch. If it doesn't then we will work together on that. We can then work on finding the most appropriate way to film and edit your film."
