Writing a documentary proposal: Learning Documentary Video: 1 Planning and Pre-production

The documentary proposal is a detailed document used to inform the major details of the film—for you, and for the benefit of your collaborators, your clients, and other creative stakeholders. Most proposals include the main information about the documentary itself—including synopsis, background, description, style, audience and goals. You'll also often include logistics like the crew, budget, fundraising strategies, production schedules and plans for distribution and marketing.
