Capturing the Real: Observational Doc

Capturing the Real: Observational Doc

Learn how to create a short observational documentary in this exciting production class!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Forgoing formal interviews, staging and voice-over narration, the observational documentary relies purely on the recording of events as they unfold. Through screenings, in-class workshops, critiques and an individual or collaborative project, students will learn the fundamentals of shooting and editing the observational documentary and will strengthen their ability to communicate ideas visually. Instructor: Jennifer Kelley

Pre-requisite: CCTV Orientation, Field Camera I, Edit I and a submitted certification project
