EDITING: EDITING TO DEVELOP CHARACTERS | DOC NYC PRO '19

"There's always a relationship we build, as editors, trying to understand how to construct whoever the character is and their different principles... It's always a different approach, depending on who the character is." - Alla Kovgan (Cunningham)

Whether you are approaching documentary or fiction work, filmmaking, writing or world building, structuring characters is a fundamental effort for growing the roots of any story. We continue to dive into the 2019 DOC NYC PRO archive to highlight some of the best panels to inspire all storytellers.

“I’ve learned that, to have this career, you need to know two things:

1. You really have to want this; and
2. If you have to learn to say no to some things.

You have to be okay to miss out on going out with friends so that you can have time to focus on your other projects.” – Kari Bentley-Quinn (playwright, WENDY AND THE NECKBEARDS)

Jonas Mekas on Documenting Your Life

"All technology is temporary. Everything falls to dust anyway. And yet, you keep making things."

Digging into The Creative Independent archives, we were inspired by this interview with the late, great filmmaker Jonas Mekas. Learning to survive and thrive as an artist? Check out the upcoming Craft Ed. Seminars on crowdfunding (featuring talks from Kickstarter, Seed&Spark and Fractured Atlas) and sustaining your career as a filmmaker.

Iconic 94-year-old filmmaker Jonas Mekas discusses the impulse behind documenting his own life in his work, why no one can really teach you how to make art, the importance of archiving, and why he has no need for creativity.
