Description

Documentaries have become one of the most popular, and mainstream, genres of cinema. An increasing number of young filmmakers are venturing into the documentary world as an “entry” to the world of visual storytelling. Year after year the popularity of non-fiction storytelling reaches new heights. During this pandemic, filmmakers all around the globe began developing creative “homemade” documentaries and are achieving audience and critical acclaim – all while keeping safe from Covid-19. But what is a documentary? How do you go about developing one? How do you shoot and edit a non-fiction film? These are some of the questions we will answer in our 6-week Introduction to Documentary class. This program is designed to “break the non-fiction ice” by examining the different modes of documentary through a series of lectures, film viewings, and critiques. Students will learn the techniques that will allow them to develop, produce, direct, shoot, capture location sound, and edit a non-fiction film. This introduction class is designed to provide you with the basic knowledge necessary for you to start working on your first short documentary project while developing a connection with an inspiring community of young artists who also want to be able to create quality film work while staying safe.
