Innovating ways that the documentary industry is growing

We all love documentaries but one thing you may have noticed through browsing Netflix is that these days there is a lot of them – and not only that but YouTube has many documentaries. The truth is that this is a golden age for documentary creators – there are so many opportunities to monetise your content and we hope in this article or blog post we can teach you how it has worked for us and going into the digital age.

So the first thing is you have to understand how documentary creation used to work back in the days of the big station. What would happen is that a big company would look at creating a documentary about a popular news event and would sub contract that to either their in house team or perhaps an outsourced production team if necessary depending on the load of other projects.

Not many documentaries got made – however and the best bet was for a production team like ourselves to go to the various smaller affiliates of major networks and try to scour gigs on small local projects. These would not pay the best but would allow a production company to sustain themselves.

One thing we found was that speciality DVD shops could also allow us to sustain ourselves – if we could have a hit that would go over well with certain speciality shops there was money to be made. For example there were many opportunities to create content for yoga studios – not just in the US but all around the globe. Being successful was not so much the quality of the equipment that you had – it was more about being able to produce content for a hungry audience and deliver it to them and get paid for it.

Nothing much has changed with the online model – the only difference is that the result as to whether you have achieved success is much quicker these days and there are far fewer middle men. It seems that these days content creators an taking more and more of their creativity and business aspects into their hands – this is a challenge for some but also an opportunity for others.

When creating a documentary – finding out the legal repurssions of what you are publishing is important – as well as obtaining releases – should you find yourself in trouble then you may have to seek the advice of a company like – good luck!

Web Cincinnati is Relaunching Its Directory

Today we are pleased to announce that we are relaunching our directory. As you may remember – or not many of you would – back in 2000 we ran the most comprehensive directory for people who are searching for things to do in the Cincinatti area. We had a map with events and we even had classified paid postings.

Unfortunately all that went away around 2001, and we lost our domain. After that we were unable to start even though we had a lot of great ideas. This is very sad because we really enjoyed running that site – we had a lot of sections including a Guestbook and not only were we a directory for people looking for things to do in the Cincinnati area but we were also a community of people.

One cool thing we did was also sell postcards – so it goes to say we missed looking after the Web Cincinnati directory and now I am pleased to announce that the website is now back and in the hands of the original owners.

Of course at the moment we don’t have much information at present – however I ask that you check back often as we move to create more and more content to here.

One of the reasons that this directory did not continue on in its original form is due to a lack of team work between the different stakeholders. One thing that we have discovered is just how important it is for people to work together – not just the people working on the website (developers, graphic artists and the like) – but also the business owners that will be listed in this directory. That is why we would like to give a big thank you to team building sydney office for helping us put together a strong, cohesive and single minded team.

Good luck with everything and I do hope you have a fantastic day and find what you are looking for – the pages will be built up as the days progress and so please enjoy your time here and all the best to you.

One of the clients we are looking to add – that is expanding their office space is Silk Wood Medical plastic surgeon practice – so we look forward to them becoming a prominent sponsoring member!
