Research in Film & Video Production

"Every film, especially a documentary, has a ‘value’. This could be social, political,historical, philosophical, artistic or of some other kind. The amount of research a scriptwriter puts in is directly related to the ‘value’ of the film."

- Trisha Das, "How to Write a Documentary Script."
