We’re making a course about all the stages of making a documentary from pre to post production! Jonas and I are stoked to share our process and what we have learned over the last decade and a half of doing this. To start, we wanted to outline the steps. In future episodes, we’ll narrow in on each of these parts.

In particular, special thanks to our Patreon supporters: Tobias Haase, Medesthai, Larry Nelson, Please Stand By, James Brady, Morgan Price, Jinyuan Yeong, George Logue and all the others that help fund our work.
