The Qualities of a Captivating True Story or Documentary

by David Wong

When an author aspires to write a story that can be adapted to a documentary, it's important to understand the current landscape for documentary films. An author must identify where his or her story fits in, and determine if it has qualities that will make it stand out amongst the other content that is being developed or that is already available to audiences. Per producer and director David Wong, the qualities of a true story that will give writers an edge and captivate audiences include rare and distinctly unique characters or story lines, and proven traction with the material.
