Writer/director Roger Boyer talks about the impact of NSI IndigiDocs

Roger Boyer

Are you thinking about applying for NSI IndigiDocs? We recently talked to some of the program’s alumni to get their thoughts on how the training changed their careers and why they think you should apply.

NSI IndigiDocs grad and Lost Moccasin director Roger Boyer (pictured) shared his thoughts about how NSI IndigiDocs changed his expectations of film training and the collaborative nature of the course’s boot camp environment.

What were your expectations for NSI IndigiDocs going into it? Did these change over the course of the program?

My expectations were to help improve my story idea through the course with feedback from the instructors. The instructors provide a lot of great feedback, but my class peers provided excellent feedback as well. In the end, my story was greatly improved.

Do you have any tips or advice for folks thinking of applying to the course?

My advice for future participants is to go into the program with an open mind and be willing to hear your classmates’ and instructors’ suggestions. The program wants you to produce the best documentary you can!

Why would you recommend NSI IndigiDocs?

I would highly recommend the program to any aspiring documentary directors. The program helps you learn new storytelling approaches and builds your directing skills.
