Acting Tips for Documentary Series 

The best way to approach a documentary series is to think of it as a journey. You are the guide, taking your audience on a trip through the lives of your subjects. To make this journey as compelling as possible, there are a few things you can do to prepare.

  1. Do your research.

It may seem like an obvious one, but it's worth repeating. The more you know about your subject, the better equipped you'll be to tell their story engagingly. Watch other documentaries, read books, and talk to people who know your subject inside and out. The more information you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to craft a compelling narrative.

  1. Find the human element.

No matter what the subject of your documentary is, there must be a human element to it. After all, we are telling stories about people, not just events or ideas. By finding the personal angle, you'll be able to connect with your audience on a much deeper level.

  1. Approach each interview with a plan.

Interviews are one of the most important elements of any documentary. They provide first-hand accounts and allow your subjects to tell their story in their own words. However, interviews can also be tricky to navigate if you don't have a plan. Before sitting down with anyone, take some time to think about what you want to get out of the conversation. What topics do you want to cover? What questions do you need to ask to get the information you need? By being prepared, you'll be able to make the most of your interviews and get the best possible footage.

  1. Be patient.

Documentary filmmaking is a long and sometimes tedious process. Don't expect everything to come together overnight. Be patient and let the story unfold naturally. Trust that your hard work will pay off in the end and that the finished product will be worth the wait.

 

  1. Have fun!

Remember, you're embarking on an amazing journey. It is your chance to explore new worlds, meet interesting people, and learn about things you never knew existed. Embrace the adventure and enjoy the ride!
