I must be one of those born writers then because all I do is write checks to cover my wife’s credit card bills! X-D
Two frames of thought here (no pun intended 😀 ) If you are just looking to have a well done documentary made in regards to your topic, IMO I would have to agree with the rest of the guys. What you’re talking about doing is very extensive and will take a lot of work but the end result will be well worth it.
The other thought is that if you are really interested in learning about the video industry and all that is involved as well as putting your own program together, then by all means go for it. But keep in mind that it will probably take you a while and that in the end it probably wont be as nice as a professional production would be. I’m 99.9% sure that if you ask everyone and anyone on this forum to compare their first video projects to their latest, everyone will start laughing because the one thing about this industry is that experience is what makes you good. Shoot, when I look back at my early projects I did many moons ago, I actually get embarrassed now.
At any rate, whatever you decide, may the force be with you.
