Paul E.T. shows us how easy it is for anyone to make a Netflix quality documentary. How cheap and how easy? Using just a few basic photography tools, some stock footage, and basic editing skills on software available to almost everyone – Paul shows us how you can make your own documentary that rivals anything you’ll see out of Hollywood and Netflix.

I’ve sure notice more documentaries – is it because they’re becoming the reality shows of today? One of the biggest reasons reality shows caught on may be the same reasons you are seeing more and more documentaries. Namely, they’re now super cheap and super easy to make (orders of magnitude cheaper than a regular TV show).
