This 10-week course is designed as both a workshop for creating your own documentary films & videos and a historical & conceptual analysis of what defines a “documentary.” The goals are to become better filmmakers, storytellers and more knowledgeable and critical viewers of the documentary form. This will be accomplished through readings, lectures, hands-on lab instruction, screenings and production assignments. Students will complete a 5-10 minute documentary short film by the end of the course. The films completed in this course are eligible to be screened at multiple ASoF student showcases, including our SXSW Official Film Community Screening scheduled for March 2017.
