Small Groups for Maximum Impact

We will only ever have 4 to 6 filmmakers active in The Documentary Collective at any one time. This is so each member can get the most from the group and we can all really get to know and support one another. Once we reach capacity we'll begin a wait list.  So apply now!

What Our Members Are Saying


Walker Hull, Documentary Filmmaker

"The Elite Film Mastermind is just the kind of support network that Id been searching for for a long time. I feel so incredibly fortunate that I finally found a group that not only supports me and my project, but that I can also give back to. I have formed lifelong friendships with incredibly talented people!"

Julie Oste, Documentary Filmmaker

"I didn't know I needed the mastermind until I did it. I knew I could learn and grow in my documentary filmmaking endeavors by being able to talk with Chris and Stephanie on a weekly basis, but I also learned a lot from my peers triumphs and challenges. There were people from various skill and experience levels. Some work on big budget Hollywood movies, others are self taught. Regardless, we all shared the same commitment to do our projects and to do them well."

Patrick Suzuki-Mitchell, Documentary Filmmaker

"I owe so much to both Chris and Stephanie and to the supportive community here. Their belief and guidance, the friends that I made and the support I garnered in the Mastermind group all helped immeasurably in making my first documentary film become a reality."

Got Questions?

How many members will you be accepting into the group at one time?

We like to keep the group small so as to be of best service to each and every filmmaker. Therefore, we will have between 4 and 6 members at any one time. When we reach capacity we start a waitlist.


At what stage of the filmmaking process do I have to be to join the mastermind?

You can be at any stage in the filmmaking process to join The Documentary Collective. From concept/idea to outreach/distribution, and anything in between.


I have limited experience in making documentary film, can I still apply?

Yes, absolutely. Our only prerequisite of acceptance into the mastermind is that each member show commitment to creating their best work and to growing as a creative and a filmmaker.


Can I cancel my membership and receive a refund?

Yes, you can cancel your membership at anytime, however, our refund policy is for 7 days from purchase. So to receive a refund you must cancel within that first 7 day period.
