finding your story

FROM idea to delivery 

I've been out there. I know how hard it is to get the right footage to tell a story. Every location has to count. Every character has to shine . Every interview has to hit the right notes. 

It's much harder without a strong point of view.   


Did you outline your story before you started shooting? Did you "cast" your subjects in advance?  Did you shoot actual scenes or just b-roll to cover soundbites? 

I'll break it to you: You have to plan for this stuff!

I've written dozens of treatments and can help you craft one that gets your film on track in development, in production and post. 

When you finally come off the road, you'll have a solid framework for editing. Your budget will be smarter. Your colleagues will be on the same page.  Your editor will love you. 


Don't hide.  Don't panic.   

Get in touch.

Kevin Huffman knows his stuff and his stuff is having a laser focus on making your film as compelling as it can be. Working with him is an education in finding your narrative and leaning into it. I brought him a doc short that was in need of an editorial overhaul. He had the ability jump right in and excavate the most essential themes guiding me through an elegant reassembly to make a much stronger film.  I don't hesitate to recommend him and would use him again in a heartbeat, yes DocStory 911, indeed.  


Kevin is amazing. He provided immediate feedback on my scripts when I was under tight deadlines. He was always available and gave constructive notes with a sense of humor. I am grateful for his expertise and I'm looking forward to working with him again!
