  • Add to Trip [+]

There are an infinite number of ways to tell your nonfiction story in film. Cinéma vérité, archival footage, photography, interviews, and recreations are just a few examples. Will your film be a personal doc? A portrait? Experimental? Propaganda? You'll study documentary filmmaking through the screening of films and clips, class discussions, readings, and presentations. Outside of class, each student will be encouraged to keep a film journal in response to the films screened, readings, and/or other research materials. In surveying the tradition, history, and conventions of nonfiction filmmaking, you will have a firm foundation on which to build and fulfill your documentary vision. You will also be encouraged to share ideas about your projects. (16 hours/All Levels)
