About the Book:

Making Films That Change the World....

As a documentary filmmaker, you have the means to open people's eyes to injustice, humanity, and new worlds. This courageous book is about making the kind of films that make a difference — to the filmmaker, to the audience, and to the world. Author Dorothy Fadiman has spent a lifetime creating a wide range of films that have impacted audiences, politics, and social thinking around the globe. She shows how you can stay true to your own truth, connect with your passion, and produce with integrity.

Producing with Passion is not about making Hollywood films or eye candy. It’s about applying your entire being to the job at hand in making a difference with your life, your life's work, and by gathering a group around you to create media miracles.

Dorothy Fadiman has spent more than 30 years searching out practical approaches to get her productions funded, finished, and seen — balancing inspiration and commitment with financing, shooting, editing, and promotion. She's the real deal and has much to share with today’s filmmaker who wants to make a difference.
