Hello, I am Alberto Martos and I am an spanish producer of documentaries of 27 year-old.
I have done everything related to production and postproduction of docs. I wrote three stories of India,Nepal and Ibiza explaining in the society,religion or archeology.
well, first doc of India (when I had 22 year-old) was sold to an important spanish channel.
second doc is difficult, it´s a music docummentary of Nepal, a format not well-known for buyers..they don´t want to risk,i think.
third one is exclusively history and archeology of Ibiza´s island (home place)but this one is too institutional....
my distributors told me that i must send docs of exotic places and in a classic manner of editing (voice over....not musical doc)
so what can i do?
now i am in paris working as a fashion cameraman....
do the distributors tell the truth?
shall I make standard-exotic-docs???
where is the market for docs????????

Hi,

I don't much about such things but I feel that in one way if your 'story' is good and well executed, it doesn't matter what style it is in. If it's good and original, and the style matches the story, it will work. Think about all the docos that are made in the 'traditional' method that are boring as hell and never sell because they are so derivative and then look at something very original like: 'Koyaanisqatsi' or some of the really poetic Easter European documentaries.

But then I don't know any better, I'm not a producer...
