“There's a huge difference between the subject and the story,” explains Emmy-winning documentarian Ken Burns. “The subject is the focus of the documentary, but the story is a manipulation of aspects of that subject that you are stitching together into a story.” Finding the story in your nonfiction film takes a lot of pre-production research, flexibility, and creative post-production work. Finding a dynamic story is the key to making a good documentary film.
