Telling emotionally tough stories on sensitive topics is difficult and important work. How do you ensure team members across production and post-production are well prepared? What special measures should be taken to ensure that the team is appropriately selected and briefed, with awareness about the potential triggering nature of the subject? How can the team work well with vulnerable documentary contributors and actors? What measures can be put in place to ensure everyone is supported before, during and after the production? 

Our speakers, drawn from the ScreenCraft Works community and at different stages of their careers, were:
