In a group lecture, Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, Florian Thalhofer, Jakob Schillinger and international documentary makers that participated in Mediamatics' AnyMedia Documentary @ IDFA Course sketched out the relations between content, media format and strategic production plan that seemed to make good sense for new media documentaries.

The talk was illustrated with projects developed in the course.

Will the Long Tail apply to documentary making?
Is the film business going the same way as the music business?
What people can make a living from making new media documentaries?
