B. Proud (I)
Saturday, March 11 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
B. Proud takes an extensive look at long-term relationships in the LGBTQ community. Through a combination of black and white portraits and accompanying stories, video and a hardbound book, this project gives a sensitive look at real life relationships. This presentation, while speaking directly to the theme of the conference, will cover the evolution of a long-term documentary project from the use of social media to find subjects, securing funding, learning video, using the written word to enhance the depth of the project, approaching publishers, and finally exploring the highs and lows of self-publishing a hardbound book.
