Creating story and structure in visual storytelling for non-editors

The greatest documentaries grab the viewer and never let go. Documentary is not just the recording of reality, but an author's rendering of reality told in a time-based medium.  It is a storyteller's art. How do you approach shooting your story to ensure a smooth edit? What do you look for in your film characters? How do you select the best material to help you craft that tale in interviews and in your filming? How do you structure your story beats for greatest impact in the edit room?

In this class, we will discuss the secrets of successful documentaries and documentarians, deconstruct film scripts, analyze films, and work on storytelling exercises to understand the magic recipes for creating great documentaries.
