A documentary film is not a contemporary concept since it has been advancing for quite a long time. A simple definition would be that documentary films combine documents and commentaries. They are primarily based on the papers of any event, a person, or a problem and the comments made by critics or people in general regarding those occurrences. To define more precisely, documentary films are non-fictional, which reflect reality, and history and are also helpful for educational purposes. They are often instructive and specific and have an appealing tone in them. Documentary films have various forms, such as interviews with people, events captured through the Camera, as they unfold in real-time, found or archival footage, animation,
or a style never seen before. Cybertize is one of the leading documentary filmmakers in Delhi, NCR
Making an original and well-articulated documentary film requires a lot of labor, research, and knowledge regarding that particular occurrence. Therefore, some essential steps can be pursued to produce a good documentary film:
While recording, the filmmakers are responsible for being truthful to their audience and maintaining transparency, thereby avoiding any misinterpretation worldwide. Robert Flaherty's movie "Nanook of the North" ( 1922) is the first official documentary or Non- Fiction narrative film which presents an ethnographic look into the pathetic life of Canadian Inuit Eskimos living in the Arctic. Flaherty is often contemplated as the "Father of Documentary Film." However, the first recorded Indian documentary is a short film of wrestlers Pundalik Dada and Krishna Navi at Hanging Garden, Bombay, filmed by Harishchandra Sakharam Bhatwadekar in 1888.

Making an original and well-articulated documentary film requires tremendous labor, research, and knowledge regarding that particular occurrence. Therefore, some essential steps can be pursued to produce a good documentary film:
During the pre-production of any documentary film, deep research is very crucial. It can be done in two ways. Firstly, references can be taken from the internet, books, various OTT platforms, and other documentaries, as well as keeping in mind not to copy the same while noting down the script. Secondly, interviews of scholars or witnesses of a particular event and jotting down their points of view or opinions are also extremely helpful in completing the research. Every detail might not be available on the internet or anywhere except the witnesses.
A first draft script is essential to make documentary films, unlike other films, which start shooting only after a complete or final draft. The introduction, speeches of the anchor, voiceovers, and similar other points need to be noted. It is necessary to keep three things in mind while preparing the first draft: first- the film's protagonist on whom the documentary is based, second- the goal or target to be conveyed to the audience. And third- the story structure. It should not merely give information and lack entertainment, which can bore the audience. Pictures, graphics, and animation can be added to make it captivating, compelling, and charismatic, presenting some scenes as docudrama and expressing them in such a way that makes them look.
A well-organized production plan includes the list of equipment, gear, essential crew, scriptwriter, and travel plan helps to avoid any further trouble while shooting the film.
Shooting can be done in two ways: A Role and B Role. Interview and anchoring parts directly taken and filmed a documentary include the A Role shooting, and B Role consists of the editing and inserting element, which adds beauty to the documentary. In addition, finding exciting personalities with a different yet charismatic aura can also add limelight, making it more eye-catching and exciting.
The location and background also play an essential role while processing a documentary film. Interviews can be filmed with a black, unfocused, or dark background as the personality and speech are the centers of Attention. Apart from that, the other depth of field must have a clear and vivid presentation.
The comfort of the subject or the source is crucial so they don't get nervous and agitated while shooting, which might hurt the whole process. It is only sometimes necessary to look at the camera lens in such a situation. One can also look at the director or the interviewer.
As Louis Kahn once said, "A Room is not a room without natural light" this quote can also be applied while shooting a documentary since it makes the content look more natural and realistic.
There must also be a variety of shots, angles, and movement while filming a documentary film, for instance, a gimbal, which helps record a running image in a natural smooth motion and does not remain static. If the sound is not paid attention to, then the result might not be as expected, especially while recording on the ground or in an interview. It must not be obstructed by unnecessary sounds but keeping it natural.
Ultimately the final script is prepared from all the footage in B Role and mixed with the voiceover with skilled editing wisely. To provide a soothing tone to the documentary film, copyright-free background music can be added along with twists and turns to keep it exciting and avoid a jump cut. Before winding up, the filmmakers should check authenticity and cross-check the script along with legal and copyright issues wisely.
In summary, documentary films disseminate information and educate the masses along with a pinch of entertainment. Documentaries aim to make people aware and actively participate in society, defend or attack a perspective, observe real life, present a great personality, etc. As documentaries deal exclusively with accurate facts, many filmmakers attempt to bring a change in society and bring life to their stories.
