Documentary Ideas: The Easiest Documentary You'll Ever Make

At times you may find yourself feeling so overwhelmed by choosing the subject of your film, it paralyzes your progress.

In case you’re stuck looking for a great documentary idea, I’ll let you in on a little secret: the easiest documentary you’ll ever make is a TRAVEL documentary.

I am of Finnish origin, but reside in Utah, USA. Last year I got to spend a month in India and I’ve visited Egypt four times for diving in the Red Sea. Before Utah I lived in Kansas for a student exchange to enrich my college experience. And travels within Europe are sort of a given when you grow up there.

My list is not nearly as impressive as some travel bloggers of the web, who visit 200+ countries before their 30’s. But not once as an adult have I traveled for the sake of travel.
