Wondering if any of you can help me out.
I have had a few interesting events occur and want to film it as it happens but have no experience with a camera/videocamera and no idae how to make a documentary.
This is something that I think is an interesting story and if for no other reason other than personal importance would like to have filmed.
I am a 21 year old female who, along with my twin brother was raised in Toronto by a single Pakistani mother.
My father is french, who I have never met, who had a relationship with my mother in Pakistan 22 years ago and when she got pregnant she moved to Canada to have us.
I looked for him online never found him.
My mother got cancer when we were 3, survived, worked full time, raised us alone, did her PhD, and became a prof/writer/editor and died in 2007 from a reoccurance of cancer.
About 6 weeks ago on a google search I found my father. We've been emailing, chatting, phoning ever since and he lives in France with his wife of 6 years.
I want to go meet him and I want it to be filmed in some way or the other. Interviews, filming our first meeting, before and after thoughts, etc.
I don't know how to go about it, but am interested in any opinions or suggestions.
I am a student and have no money to offer you, this would be a creative collaboration between us.
