Day 111 - 112: When I received an e-newsletter from the International Documentary Association last week with a notice that the Pare Lorentz documentary grant had a deadline that was fast approaching, I knew we needed to apply.  "The 2011 Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund will provide production grants totaling $75,000 to be used in the creation of original, independent documentary films that illuminate pressing issues in the United States. Grants will be made to up to 5 projects that tell a compelling story and focus on one of Pare Lorentz's central concerns—the appropriate use of the natural environment, justice for all or the illumination of pressing social problems." Since our film focuses on both justice for all and pressing social problems, our team had to scramble to assemble our packet in 6 days. So over the weekend I helped write the proposal for the grant and wrote the script for our trailer as well. It's amazing what you can come up with when you're pressed for time.
