The art of making a historical documentary

Tomorrow we’re delivering the final master of The Story of the Road. A documentary that tells the story of the construction of The Great Ocean Road, built by returned soldiers from WWI. We’ve been working on it for a year and as they say in reality TV world, the process has been quite the ‘journey’. The ups and downs have been on par with the Matterhorn roller coaster. And at times it has felt more like a sprint than a marathon. But we’re currently staring down the finish line and we’re bloody excited to see our work on the cinema screen in a few weeks time. We’re also very proud of the story that we’ve been able to tell. Here are some of the lessons we learnt on this ‘journey’ they call documentary making.
