Community Docs examines contemporary issues that matter

Our equipment and why it matters!

We have selected highly-portable Netflix certified equipment with a small footprint. This allows us to interview and film on location as efficiently, unobtrusively and discreetly as possible.



Do I need to provide consent for an interview?

Yes, it is required by film festivals and distributors that we document your consent to film you and private locations. We have three forms: a location consent form, a crowd consent form and an interview consent form. We will provide the required forms.

Making a Film Through a Collaborative Process

We believe that the making of a documentary is a collaborative process. Documenting different opinions is a complex undertaking. Some people may embrace new technology, others may oppose it.

The truth often lies somewhere in the middle.

We would love to hear from you!
