Can anyone reccomend a good website on making documentaries? I've worked on a few in the past, but never threw one together myself, so I'm kind of in the dark here.

Any tips?

I make documentaries, and I couldn't name a single website. Instead I try to find any and every doc that has a director commentary. Their insights, the fact that they all have commonalities in budget and technical woes, is a constant source of inspiration.

Anything Criterion fits the bill: Hoop Dreams, Crumb, Harland County, USA, Burden of Dreams, The Times of Milk, F For Fake...

I have a good friend who created this documentary:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1848767/

It's had an amazing run in festivals the world over and generated a lot of press for him.

Forum member Steve Whitehead was the DOP.
