Question: i need to do one for my class, i needs to be something related in latino/hispanic culture, mexico, border, or anything on that line..i never done a documentary or a film before, so i need tips and things to look out for, etc from you guys. anything would really help so heres some of my ideas for a topic: 1. "im crossing the border" -its like mtv's true life. a documentary about two people, one is going to the US from Mexico, and one is from Mexico and is going to the US. 2. life of a illegal immigrant in the US (thinking of doint it with 2-3 diffrent ethnicity) -probably 2-3 group/person/family who are illigals and see how they cope with under the table jobs, etc. 3. "crossing the border"---this time someone trying to cross the border illegally ( im not sure if can do this one legally and hardness wise ) (i wanna be realistic )...i dont wanna go to jail if we get caught haha 4. common stereotyoes among latino/hispanics 5. latino/hispanic food 6. interracial dating oh and im posting it here cause i always get good answers from this side of yahoo answers. thanks

Hi ........... Documentaries are somewhat difficult to do unless you really do a detailed outline of exactly what you want to come across to your audience. Step by step just alike a well written story you want a video to explain the feelings and emotions while the well chosen words tell the story. I really like the first one best. It will show the real differences between being an American citizen going into Mexico vs a Mexican citizen going into the US. You really have your work cut out for you. Best wishes.

Look into the impact of violence on TV and Video games and the negative effect it is having on society.

This is a recent business film documentary about young entrepreneurs ''The YES Movie'' produced by Young Entrepreneur Society Founder Louis Lautman. Trailer for reference: http://www.TheYESmovie.com

You have a lot of good ideas, I like #2 and #4 the best. 2 would be good if you could find some families to interview. If you can't find a family to document, then go with #4 because you can interview legal and illegal immigrants individually. Good luck!

4. people need to understand that there is a HUGE difference from a Hispanic or Latino person and an illegal immigrant from Mexico.

I'm sure a documentary like that exists, just don't expect it to be without some political agenda behind it that skews the "facts" they found into reasoning that fits their own political viewpoints. Your best bet would be to independently research the answers you are looking for if you want truth.
