Get engaged with your subject matter and become a better documentarian and filmmaker. I was recently a videographer (DoP) on a 2 day shoot filming for World Vision, a relief and development non profit organization. The shoot brief was to film interviews and b-roll telling the story of World Vision's involvment in teaching literacy to uplift people in impoverished South African communities. A fascinating and important story to tell. By its nature this is a "run and gun" shoot.
