The production of a documentary is now within technical reach of any news organization. The road less travelled is distribution.
The San Francisco Chronicle is one newspaper picking through the brambles after publishing the feature “Last Men Standing” http://projects.sfchronicle.com/2016/living-with-aids/ on long-term AIDS survivors and producing an accompanying documentary film that’s set to come out April 8.
“It all starts with the story, with creating a great film, and from there distribution is emerging,” says video journalist Brian Storm. “I wouldn’t say anyone has cracked the code on getting work out there, but I think that stuff is going to get easier.”
