How to Write a Documentary Treatment

first_imgImage via Shutterstock.Key CharactersSome grant applications ask for summaries of each of the key characters in the film. These summaries are simple, one-paragraph breakdowns of the key characters and how they contribute to the story. You should highlight the details of each character and why you’re including them in the film.Director’s StatementSome grant programs or other investors require a director’s statement detailing your passion for the project and why you want to share the story with the world. This is your opportunity to showcase why you’re the right person to make this film. Status of the FilmDifferent grant programs will have different timelines in mind while they consider funding films. Thoroughly describe where your film is in the production process, but also clearly identify how much work remains to complete the film. Key Crew Members If you have a great team attached to the film, this is your opportunity to sell your crew members and their qualifications for the project.Line Item BudgetImage via Shutterstock.If a grant committee or investor is going to contribute funds, they will want to know how you plan to allocate them. Go into detail, and be prepared to answer why you really need $50 for gummy bears or why you’re shooting in a more expensive camera format. Check out a film production budget template for ideas about how to craft your own.Fundraising StrategyUnless you’re very lucky, most grants or investments won’t fund the entire project. In this section, you will detail how you plan to pursue additional funding to complete the project.Distribution and Marketing StrategyFrom the beginning of your project, you’ve probably envisioned the perfect platform or space for the finished project. In this section of your treatment, you will explain how you plan to place the finished film with these platforms to reach the largest audience possible.As you start the treatment submission process, you will find that each outlet has unique requirements. Be prepared to make changes or additions to your treatment. Take the time to craft a quality treatment beforehand, and this process will go much more smoothly.Do you know any tips or tricks about the treatment writing process? Let us know in the comments. You’ve got an idea for a documentary, but you need funding. Writing a treatment is an essential part of fundraising. Top image via Ad Week / Alex Weprin.Writing treatments is not the most glamorous part of the filmmaking process. However, they demonstrate your grasp of the story and its production. As such, a quality treatment improves your fundraising efforts and streamlines the filmmaking process.In the simplest terms, a treatment is a detailed report that can inform potential investors or contributors about a project, including its budget, production timeline, and other processes. Often, a treatment is a living document that you alter as necessary — for example, different grant programs or funding outlets require different information. The following are the key components of an effective treatment.Image via Shutterstock.Log LineA log line is a two- to three-sentence summary of the film. Think of it like an elevator pitch. It needs to be short, powerful, and captivating. Your log line will be the first piece of information people see about your film, so it’s critical to leave a good impression. I can tell you from personal experience that you will recite this log line continuously during the production and distribution of your film, so make sure you love it.Summary of TopicThe summary is a longer and more detailed version of your log line. Usually, you’ll want to summarize your topic in one to two pages. This is when you begin to really make a case for your film and its relevance. Something to keep in mind is that a treatment is creative. Don’t write it like you would an essay in high school. Write in a captivating and entertaining manner. This is the first chance your reader has to see your narrative voice in action.Narrative SynopsisYour narrative synopsis starts to break down the themes and story arcs of your film — in depth. It demonstrates the framework of your film, and this is where you’ll detail the progression of your story and characters. This is also where the reader can see your directorial vision. After reading the synopsis, the reader should understand how the story will play out and how the characters will develop.last_img read more

Court questions Assam’s jumbo transport to Gujarat

first_imgThe Gauhati High Court on Monday asked Assam’s Chief Wildlife Warden Ranjana Gupta whether she had taken note of a 2016 Supreme Court order against transfer of elephants while clearing the transit of four juvenile elephants to Gujarat for a religious event.Hearing separate petitions filed by Kerala-born Canadian Sangita Iyer and Guwahati-based NGO Avinava Prayash, a division Bench comprising acting Chief Justice Arup Kumar Goswami and Justice Manish Choudhury sought clarification from the Centre with regard to the operation of the apex court’s interim order in 2016 prohibiting transfer of elephants outside a State by their possessors.The Bench also asked Ms. Gupta to clarify whether she had taken note of the Supreme Court’s interim order when she authorised on June 12 the transit of the elephants to Ahmedabad’s Jagannath Temple for a Rath Yatra on July 4.The oldest of the four elephants — females Joytara and Rani, and males Babulal and Rupsing — is nine years old. ‘Will not survive trip’Wildlife activists had argued that these juvenile elephants would not survive the heatwave while travelling in a metal railway wagon 3,106 km from eastern Assam’s Tinsukia to Ahmedabad.Noting that the railways too had sought clarification on the Supreme Court’s interim order before transporting the elephants, the Bench referred to the March 8 letter of the Project Elephant Division of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change seeking legal steps for the “welfare of the captive elephants, etc., and strict monitoring” to prevent illegal transport of elephants between States.The petitioners’ counsel Bhaskar Dev Konwar, argued that the elephants would face adverse climatic conditions during their train journey to Gujarat.He also pointed out that unlike Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Assam has not framed rules for management and maintenance of captive elephants under Section 64(2) of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972. He also contended that none of the elephants sent outside Assam on temporary leases have returned till date. The case is scheduled to come up for hearing again on Tuesday.last_img read more

Upgraded ESP Centre to Reach More Children with Disabilities

first_imgStory Highlights The $86-million centre, located at 95 Hanover Street, downtown Kingston, was constructed by the Government through financing from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Chief Technical Director in the Ministry, Dione Jennings, said the expansion of the centre is in keeping with the Government’s efforts to protect persons with disabilities and promote their rights. Director of the Early Stimulation Programme (ESP), Antonica Gunter-Gayle, could hardly contain her joy at the recent opening of the programme’s upgraded facility for special needs children. Director of the Early Stimulation Programme (ESP), Antonica Gunter-Gayle, could hardly contain her joy at the recent opening of the programme’s upgraded facility for special needs children.“I feel great, I am excited; the staff is overcome. It is a good feeling,” she says.The $86-million centre, located at 95 Hanover Street, downtown Kingston, was constructed by the Government through financing from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).It has a clinic, three assessment rooms with bathrooms, cubicles for early-childhood practitioners, sensory room and speech therapy room, and other units.Mrs. Gunter-Gayle said the upgraded centre will enable the ESP to improve assessment and intervention services for children with disabilities.“Our children with disabilities are children first, and I am really happy about this building,” she said.“We are giving them the opportunity to be the best that they can be to reach their highest potential,” she added.Operating under the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, the ESP caters to the developmental needs of children with disabilities up to six years, and currently provides early stimulation and interventions for more than 1,500 children across the island.Portfolio Minister, Hon. Shahine Robinson, said with the upgrading of the facility, the ESP is equipped to do more for its clientele, as it is now positioned to engage a wider corps of specialised professionals, including developmental psychologists, speech therapists, and occupational therapists.Over the long term, she says, the intention is to establish regional centres to provide early intervention services, which, she said, “will help to reduce the institutionalisation of young children with developmental disabilities across the island”.Senior Social Protection Specialist with the IDB, Donna Harris, commends the Government and its partners for “embarking on this important journey for the benefit of our children with disability. This wonderful structure represents the future of many of our kids”.Chief Technical Director in the Ministry, Dione Jennings, said the expansion of the centre is in keeping with the Government’s efforts to protect persons with disabilities and promote their rights.She says the Government is committed to promoting social protection and respect of all human beings, breaking down barriers of discrimination and building bridges of inclusion.She points out that approximately 60 per cent of ESP beneficiaries are on the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), and have limited access to intervention services.Mrs. Jennings says measures aimed at promoting and protecting the rights of persons in situations of vulnerability will continue and “we are assured that the staff and beneficiaries of this facility will be even more energised in their commitment”.Omar Francis, who is the Assistant to Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, says the upgrading of the centre is a welcome development.Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson (left), interacts with children at the upgraded Early Stimulation Programme (ESP) facility located at 95 Hanover Street, downtown Kingston, at the recent official opening. Looking on is Omar Francis, who is the Assistant to Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton.“Early intervention for disadvantaged kids has been proven to have dramatic long-term effects. When incorporated with early-childhood education, nutrition and health, the lasting effects are invaluable,” he states.He says studies have shown that children who receive early treatment are at significantly lower risk for serious cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, such as stroke and diabetes.“These findings demonstrate the great potential of coordinated birth to age five early-childhood programmes to prevent chronic disease, reduce healthcare costs and produce a flourishing society,” Mr. Francis points out.Opposition Spokesperson on Labour and Social Security, Dr. Fenton Ferguson, also welcomes the development, describing it as a “worthy response to our children with disabilities”.Technical management for the project was provided by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF).The assessment centre is part of a Government of Jamaica Integrated Social Protection and Labour Programme, aimed at improving human capital and labour market outcomes for the poor by enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of key social protection programmes.Since 1975, the ESP has been serving the special needs community, and has reached some 30,000 children through various intervention services.In addition to assessment of children with disabilities, the ESP provides rehabilitative therapy, community-based intervention services within homes, schools, health centres, and day-care facilities, as well as counselling support for families and caregivers of special needs children.last_img read more

Kim Kardashian sacrificed sitting breathing and peeing for this slinky Met Gala

first_imgKim Kardashian at Met Gala 2019InstagramKim Kardashian was so committed to her Met Gala 2019 ensemble that she sacrificed sitting, peeing and even breathing! The KKW Beauty mogul, in a behind-the-scenes video shared by Vogue, is seen talking about the hardships of squeezing herself in an ensemble curated by Manfred Thierry Mugler. Turns out a team of three people were required to lace up her corset so that she could fit perfectly in the skin-tight gown.In the video shared by Vogue, Kim Kardashian is seen stating, “Okay, so Anna [Wintour], if I don’t sit down for dinner, now you know why. I’ll be walking around, mingling, talking, but I cannot hardly sit.” Further, in the video, Kim K also mentioned, “Wish me luck, I won’t be able to pee for about four hours,” she said while dressing up for the big night. “We’re coming up with a plan for what we do in case of an emergency.” The challenges for the reality TV star didn’t end there as she had to deal with further transportation perils. Speaking about the same, Kim told the paparazzi, “I asked them to get a stool. So I’ll have to stand as I’m riding in a sprinter van on the way there with, I think, a pole, so I can hold onto the pole,” and added, “Just wish me luck.”Kim Kardashian’s ‘wet look’ surely left a mark at the Met Gala 2019 red carpet. With its eccentricity and a dress that was like no other, the ensemble definitely made an impact. As Kardashian spoke about details concerning her gown, she revealed that it took the designer nearly eight months to complete it! “This is the first time in 20 years that Mr. Mugler has designed for the House of Thierry Mugler,” she quoted at the red carpet. “So [for him] to come design this gown for me, is such an honor. This is about 8 months in the making,” she concluded.The 39-year-old star shared pictures of her ‘wet look’ along with details on Instagram.
