Event Description

This hands-on class for new filmmakers focuses on how to plan, shoot and edit a short documentary. The class will introduce participants to screen language and sequencing and provide hands-on experience with digital video cameras and the Adobe Premiere editing system.  Equipment will be provided.

Participants will work in small teams to produce a 3-5 minute documentary profile piece. Story subjects will be assigned to allow participants to focus their energies on learning how to use the equipment, work in a crew, and plan and structure their story.  Story subjects are drawn from people and places in the local community, including nonprofits, small businesses, and artists. Filming locations may be non-Metro-accessible (but we will try to team groups together to ensure at least one in each team has a car).

The class takes place on seven consecutive Saturday mornings at the new Docs In Progress location at 801 Wayne Avenue and at production sites in the area. Participants will also need to commit an additional 10 hours of time outside of class for production shoots and editing.

Dates
April 7 - May 19, 2018 (seven consecutive Saturdays) from 10 am - 1 pm. 
In
addition, participants should plan on spending 4-6 additional hours outside of class time between the second and third week of class for shooting. Participants who want additional edit time for their projects will also have the option of staying for two extra hours after the fifth class session and two extra hours after the sixth class session.
