You will not have to skate, but you’ll need mental athleticism. Scripting skills and on-camera presence is a plus.
I’m in the middle of starting up another documentary with narrative films in the wish queue – and we are pushing hard on that, and the website is part of a feed of events generated from production to autonomous production of ground level art and culture reporting.
