Making A Documentary Without Money

Making your first feature documentary is hard, and it’s a process that you rarely get a close look at. This is why I decided to start documenting my own struggle as a filmmaker.

About three years ago I started working on my debut feature doc called The Pearl Of Africa. Making it seems to be impossible, which I why I decided to create a Vlog about my struggle to make the film.

The first episode explores the nature of creativity. What it means to be an independent filmmaker, and striving for something unique.

(We later sold the film to netflix, but that was before the making of this episode).
