Reviews for Docs in Progress, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with Docs in Progress for over five years. Throughout that time, I have been consistently impressed with the professionalism, passion, and dedication the organization brings to the DC documentary filmmaking community. Anyone with an interest in this medium - whether filmmaker or audience member - owes it to themselves to become a part of what Docs in Progress has created.

I have attended virtually all of the screenings since the founding of Docs in Progress, and they are without fail well-organized, professional, and extremely helpful to filmmakers.

I would simply continue to get the word out about the important work they are doing.

As a volunteer, I appreciate that Docs In Progress gave me many opportunities to experience how the networking with other film makers can be established and what elements are needed to product a film. By the benefit of volunteering, I have been informed a lot about the process that I didn't know ,for example,the law issue,insurance,the connection with other organizations. In particular, the rough cut screening is very helpful not only for the film makers but also for the beginner of this field like myself. I was surprised to listen to a sharp and insightful judgment and their feedback points out the core problem that the film would have to keep up or additionally be edited. The effort Docs In Progress makes for film makers should be highly appreciated.

Personally I'm grateful to Erica for giving me chances to participate in a part of the activities of Docs In Progress. Indeed,Docs In Progress is a great place for the beginner of film making to broaden the perspective and wider approach to overall process of production.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

offer more Webinar for editing ,camera operation,lectures.
