DOC IGNITE: From Treatment To Screen

This event took place on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023 at 1:30 pmOnline (Zoom)

The second of two helpful presentations from the Hot Docs Industry team: the Doc Ignite session on “From Treatment to Screen” – the steps needed to bring your picture from the page to a finished product.

How do you bring a story off the page? With a case study from filmmakers Dan Ashby and Lucy Taylor, this session will outline the next steps after developing a treatment. Participants will learn practical takeaways about visuals, sound and location, from preparing shot lists to determining interview questions to problem solving during production. 


How do you lift words on the page to the screen for a documentary? In this interactive session, participants will get practical takeaways on how to break down scenes from the treatment to manageable bite-sized ways to ensure coverage to the story during the shoot. Prepare for your next documentary with confidence.
