Autumn 2013 Media Production Workshop
Social Documentary Production
Social documentary brings together journalism, social activism and the art of filmmaking. In this course, students will explore the genre of social documentary, while producing short documentary films.
Students can expect to acquire the basic media production skills (camera, audio, editing) needed for documentary film production, while also gaining an understanding of the social documentary genre.
Media production is a time-consuming endeavor. Students should expect to spend significant time outside of class producing, filming, and editing their projects.
