Event Description

This hands-on workshop will encompass an overview of the tools used in solo documentary shooting: cinematography technique, existing light shooting and audio recording. Over the course of 2 consecutive Saturdays, participants will learn how to prepare for a shoot, the essential equipment needed for the field, safety best practices, how to adapt to difficult conditions, and how to "shoot for the editor." Time will also include a field practice exercise and group discussion of collected footage. Participants may choose to use their own cameras and equipment, but must know how to operate them prior to starting class. HD cameras will be provided by Docs in Progress for use in the workshop.

Session 1: Saturday, July 14 from 12:00-4:00 pm
Session 2: Saturday, July 21 from 12:00-4:00 pm
