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 Saturdays at Docs In Progress and at production sites in the area. Participants will also need to commit an additional 4-6 hours of time outside of class for production shoots and editing.

DATES
September 8 - October 20, 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.

Michael balances teaching with being a practicioner. His film Walls that Bleed: The Story of the Dudley/A&T Uprising looked at a forgotten story of campus unrest during the civil rights movement. It played at numerous film festivals and community screenings, and was nominated for Best Documentary Film in the HBO/CNN category at the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival. He is currently in post-production on Color Correction which uses the science of DNA testing and ethnographic research to construct a narrative of racial identity in the United States. He has also received the Platinum Award in Distance Learning, Best Short Film at the Spaghetti Junction Urban Film Festival, and the Audience Award for Best Film at the 48 Hour Film Festival in Greensboro, NC.
