Strategic Consultation on the Strengths, Weaknesses and Next Steps for your Project


Doug Block & Peter Hamilton, Senior Producers / Consultants

This initial engagement will review your documentary project, whether it is in concept development, has advanced to the trailer / pitch reel phase, is in post-production, or completed.

Three-step Process

  1. An introductory phone call reveals your project mission and production status
  2. Doug reviews your creative materials offline and then shares his Takeaways in a detailed call.
  3. We review distribution opportunities in a third call (or in-person meeting, if possible) with Peter and/or Doug.

“Engaging Peter Hamilton and Doug Block as consultants on my documentary project, Finding Daylight, is one of the smartest decisions I could have made. The time they spent and acumen with which they approached my project has opened up a whole new way for me to improve my film and as importantly, navigate the various marketing opportunities to bring it to the attention of audiences hungry for this story.” –Bettina Moss Documentary Filmmaker/Writer
