WHAT PEOPLE SAY
— Name, Title
“Testimonials work great. Showing your reviews in quote marks has a powerful effect on customers and makes them more likely to trust you.”
Over the course of 8-weeks, you’ll learn both the conceptual and practical elements of making a documentary film. The first half of the course offers a broad overview for those looking for an intro to the genre or a review of the basics. The second half builds on those teachings to learn professional workflow from research and development to distribution while creating your own 5-minute short film.
We will watch and discuss a different documentary film each week to learn from other award-winning filmmakers and give you a new appreciation for the genre. We’ll celebrate the completion of the course with a showcase of documentary films completed in the program.
This is a hands-on, fast-paced crash course in documentary filmmaking, geared towards both beginner and advanced filmmakers. Additional resources will be tailored for individual filmmakers and their projects. Students maintain ownership of their work developed in this program.
