Day 89: I wrote the treatment for the PGA Diversity Workshop! Well, let me rewind for a second. Since I didn't get a response from the email I sent a few days ago, I decided to do some online investigating {thank goodness for cheating exes who are the reason I developed this skill in the first place} and I was able to find the facebook page of the mother. I sent her a message there and included my email address and the next day she emailed me the following:

Good morning Ms. Ford.  I am *******, *******'s mother.  I appreciate you reaching out to me with the goal of doing a documentary on *******.

I, along with my sister *******, would like to meet with you to discuss your idea.  I will be staying in the Los Angeles area from 4/2/11 - 4/9/11, and would love to meet with you in person to discuss further.  My sister will contact you today or tomorrow to discuss some particulars and set up a date, time, and location to meet, because today and tomorrow I will be unreachable.

I truly look forward to meeting you.



Well that email gave me hope so I headed over to Google to help me figure out how to write this treatment. First I read bits and pieces of the highly informative "How to Write a Documentary Script" by Trisha Das. Skimmed over the things I already knew and honed in on new information. Took notes on the important points that stuck out to me so that I'd have them at my fingertips when needed. Then I googled "Documentary Treatment Examples" and that helped out even more. By midnight I was done.

Now on to writing the 2 page synopsis and an Artist Statement about why I want to participate...
