I hope I came to the right place, I've been searching with Google trying to answer this question.
I have an idea for a documentary I'd like to produce (with a limited budget).
I have a basic idea and structure for it, and I would be doing some of the narrative work, writing, and possibly some of the interviews, but I lack skills in filming, editing and sound, and I don't have the time/budget to go out and learn and buy everything.
It's not really a money making idea, but the topic is one that would make, in my opinion, a good documentary, and I think the length and quality could be flexible.
My thought was that if I could come up with a good idea, be willing to work on script and setting up interviews, and supplying some money, etc., that perhaps a student (or team) would be willing to work on the project for school or getting experience, etc.
Am I asking too much?
Is this ever done?
And if so, where to start looking, asking and so forth?
I live in Orange County California.
