Documentary Funding Proposals


What’s Your Story?


The focus of this leading-edge workshop is showing how to link the many necessary parts – from inception, through creative, technology and production, to traditional or digital distribution and real world business development.  These are the elements that will make your funding proposal rise above all the rest.


The agenda for this brand of storytelling covers more than 50 items.  Each one is offered in a way that shows how to be a winner in the specific category, yet still blend them all into a meld that guarantees continuity and continuous improvement. 


Are you expected to integrate digital assets into your documentary funding proposal?  If you, your organization, office or company are planning a film, television show, radio special, Internet presentation or a interactive photo essay, the answer is yes!


To create a digital documentary using a competitive, multiplatform model, your timeline could be 3 years.  Also, expect that your expenses might creep to $2 Million or more. 


As we each grow beyond web sites and social media, Digital Storytelling is turning into a hotbed for collaborative development and ever-expanding production crews.  Team members learn from one another and your end product gains from the combined intellect, energy and projections.  This means greater expenses.


If your associates can’t relate to Digital Storytelling as a genre, try Multimedia, Transmedia, Webisodes, Branded Content or even Branded Entertainment.  We offer these and many subcategories in the Thornhill Digital Storytelling Seminar. 


TDS NEWS, our detailed event program, includes:


·         The Thornhill Digital Storytelling “50 Steps To Documentary Success” checklist and

up-to-date industry examples and news links. 


·         The publication lists “Everyday Resources” a slate of industry stalwarts providing no-cost, e-mailed, daily information reports on individuals, companies and trends in digital media.


·         TDS NEWS is available only at the seminar.
