Doc U - Date Change!

The new date for the next Doc U is WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21.

Bring your questions to The Cinefamliy on Wednesday, March 21 (moved from Tuesday, March 20) and join
moderator Lisa Leeman (One Lucky Elephant, Crazy
Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trunga
) as she discusses the
ins and outs of accounting, business management, and tax reporting
, with
Chris Perez Associate at the law firm of Donaldson & Callif,
Jeffrey Schwarz of Automat Pictures, and Lee Storey (Smile

'Til It Hurts: The Up With People Story).

Documentary filmmakers come in all stripes and from all walks of
life, and often the only shared quality is a passion for their subjects
and a desire to get the story told. Underlying these disparate
characteristics however, are fundamental aspects of how all documentary
business models must operate. What are the various options available to
filmmakers, to be set up in the business of making documentaries? What
business model works best for you and your filmmaking? How can you
decide? And what are the implications come tax time?
