Feet Wet, Hands Dirty: A crash-course in documentary filmmaking
Many of us are making films, chronicling the intimate narratives of our own lives, watching and participating in offshoots like reality shows or documenting stories around us. This will be a crash course in the history, process and creation of the documentary incorporating critical viewings, passionate discussion and ultimately a journey of discovery where both the collective and the individual narrative voice of each participant will be explored.
Course given by: Evan Beloff
Workshop dates: Monday, March 31st, 7pm – 10pm
Total Hours: 14hrs
Workshop price: $245.00 (tax included) – While all equipment and one miniDV master tape is provided by the MediaWorkshop it is recommended but not mandatory that you have access to a miniDV cam outside of the workshop.
