Meeting with Tien Nguyen

How lucky am I to get advice from a smart and talented woman who looks incredible just a few months after giving birth.? Today documentary filmmaker (The Story of Spirits) Tien Nyugen and I met to talk docshop. I believe my first words were "Hey, the last time we were together, you were puking in the bathroom from morning sickness" That's so charming of me! I can't wait to start interviewing people!
I so get what I need to do right now, and I've got lots of work to do. I am absolutely determined to secure funding - through online marketing and grants.
Here's my right now list of things to do:

  1. Research NP's for sponsored funding
  2. Research and buy a camera!
  3. Listen and read online successful pitches
  4. Watch every documentary on parents and children
  5. Invest in a basic seminar

First 3 goals

  • Shoot 2-3 footage/trailer
  • Write the perfect pitch
  • Align w/NPs
Thanks Tien!
