Making a Digital Documentary Note the date change

Access to inexpensive and high quality tools has enabled people to explore subjects and ideas in new and exciting ways. The documentary form has never been so popular. Participants will learn about the art of non-fiction filmmaking over seven weeks while creating a short digital film. From an introduction to the documentary types and styles, to writing, through the interview process, capturing B-roll, and the post-production process, we will explore how stories are told in engaging and informative ways.
