Intro to Documentary Production (5 Saturdays)


4/6, 4/13, 4/20, 4/27, 5/4 | 5 Saturdays from 10 am - 4pm

What story have you always wanted to tell?

This hands-on class teaches new filmmakers to plan, shoot, and edit short documentaries. It covers visual storytelling through interviews, B-roll, and archival footage and photos. To prepare for this class:

Choose a person for your documentary. It can be a relative, or a local community member. That person should be available for interviews and tied to an interesting location or activity.

Have a short pitch ready about why this would be an interesting story.

Additional information: Docs will supply cameras and equipment/software for postproduction. Plan to spend 4-6 extra hours on shooting B-roll outside of class. Extra editing time also can be reserved during Docs In Progress business hours.
