TDL Now Weekly Show! + Conversation with ‘Real Boy’ Director Shaleece Haas

Welcome to the first episode of The Documentary Life‘s new weekly format! Contained within this initial release I’ll start off by detailing how the new format will work from this point forward. Namely, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll be releasing a new episode every Friday! Also, the format will consist of a topic segment hosted entirely by myself, followed by our conversation with a documentary industry guest.


Speaking of, we’re happy to announce that this week’s documentary industry guest is filmmaker, Shaleece Haas. Haas’ latest documentary, Real Boy, has already played over 70 venues, including an extraordinary number of film festivals, as well as a recent coveted run on PBS’ Independent Lens. Haas makes for a great conversation not only because of her documentary expertise, but also because of her background in education, a perfect combo for #DocLifers to learn how to best live and lead their own documentary lives!
