So you want to make documentary films ft. filmmaker Lisa Rideout
Show Notes

So often in academia we critique problematic depictions in the media; but, what does it look like to get on the other side and create new representation? Filmmaker Lisa Rideout talks about her journey leaving academia to make documentary films.

When she started talking about putting post-its on the wall to plan and visualize her projects, I knew we were going to get along. 😂 

Lisa shares great insight & advice on:

  • the power of storytelling and representation
  • following your gut & creating your path forward
  • practical tips to pursue a creative dream
  • how to get started making documentary films
