Not Sure Where To Start?

Hi there! We're Chris and Stephanie.

 

We have taken our background of over 25 years in the commercial, narrative feature film and documentary worlds, our experiences living and working throughout the world in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia and our lifestyle which involves juggling finances - personal and film, raising children and being conscious consumers and combined that with our drive to help and support other filmmakers to make their best documentary film's.

All of this led us to create, and champion, the concept of leading The Documentary Life and helping others to lead theirs.
