I'm making my first documentary! I have been producing an oral history of professional theatrical and circus clowns in the west for about 4 years, and want to use those skills to produce a documentary about the world renowned Clown Conservatory at San Francisco Circus Center.
We will be speaking to all of the past directors of the conservatory, it's founder, and numerous students and instructors to help share this dying art form. We will talk with students about their successes and failings and try to hammer home the importance of sacrificing whatever you can to pursue your weird personal dream, if you have any chance to.
