The Doc Tank is an international creative center for emerging and established documentary directors, headed by award-winning independent filmmaker Immy Humes. We create all kinds of enlightened non-fiction media and also consult, teach, nurture, network, and collaborate.
Non-fiction Media Production
in all shapes and sizes
We are a fully-equipped media production company, founded in 1999 by filmmaker Immy Humes. We specialize in creating intelligent non-fiction media, from Academy-Award nominated independent documentaries to TV programs, educational websites, and web videos for promotion and advocacy.
We produce our own work and also provide a variety of services, tailored to the client and the project. We shoot in all film and video formats, for networks, independents, websites, syndicated programs, foreign and out of town producers. A Final Cut Pro non-linear edit system is available for rent (with or without an editor).
We work on a consulting or mentoring basis on all phases of production, including management and budget, pre-production, research, and writing, including fundraising proposals and foundation applications.
And we can hook you up with the right people and the right places, including sound recordists, gaffers, production assistants, graphic artists, and animators.
