Plenty of room for new documentary filmmakers?
I had assumed that the Documentary Channel offers frequent repeats of monthly features by design, and shows paid programming by necessity, but this story makes me wonder how much room there is for new participants in the area of documentary film. Personally, I have quite a few I want to make, and each of them could be made for around $300, but minimum errors and omissions insurance plans begin around $2500-3000, so I'm a bit stymied in my efforts. I'll still get mine made; I'll just have to take my time doing each one while I must work a real job for a living.
