Abstract The Starting Place: From Conception to Creation Over the last decade the Atlanta arts community has expanded tremendously. WonderRoot is a community arts center located in Atlanta that strives to create an artist- friendly city through offering affordable access to art facilities and professional development opportunities to Atlantans. Despite WonderRoot's efforts to help its artists monetize their work, many still struggle to support themselves. To further understand this struggle I filmed three WonderRoot artists over the period of seven months. This document serves to explicate the process of making the documentary, The Starting Place, and details the experiences of the film's three subjects.
