Documentary networking website.
A worldwide documentary film networking website which links a British production company(s) with indigenous film makers to create thought provoking, beautiful documentaries around the world.
The website will initially host a single production company which links up with various film makers around the world who otherwise would have trouble making a documentary through lack of experience or money. This gives the indigenous film makers the chance to have the experience of working in a professional crew and it also the opportunity to document amazing stories from around the world which otherwise might be overlooked by conventional media production companies.
Eventually there may be multiple production companies registered on the site who are also linking up with indigenous documentary film makers.
Documentaries will be hosted on the site via its own streaming media player. The site will be free to join for anyone, although a fee will be paid by registered production companies. Initially the site will be funded by advertisements; banners and also short video ads before documentaries on the websites streaming media player.
As well as just providing a platform to create and view documentaries, it is also a learning tool. Forums will be provided for help and advice, as well as video tutorials and hopefully podcasts by recognised documentary film makers.
Hopefully the project can get sponsorship from a broadcasting channel, preferably on Sky as this appeals to the global community.
For future development, a second site could be established for makers of short films.
