Documentary Production
FILM 430
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

In this course, documentary history and theory meet production: "What does it take to make different style documentaries--including observational, poetic, expository, participatory and reflexive?" Students will explore documentary story elements and film grammar as they learn how to capture sound, record video, edit material, light subjects, conduct an interview, and work with archival materials, graphics, and music. They will learn through practice and by screening and analyzing a wide range of long-form documentaries made by a diverse set of filmmakers.
