Understanding what story is and how it works is a step toward finding your own creative voice as a filmmaker. Whether you are trained in a conventional broadcast news style, a photographer who has been asked by his or her editor to shoot video for a newspaper’s website, or a documentarian who is weary of using video cameras, this workshop is for you. Students work directly with journalists who have first-hand experience with DSLR cameras to help them use the DSLR to better tell documentary stories. As a goal over the course of the workshop, students find and shoot documentary projects about the local community. Instructors also cover production, workflow, file conversion and external audio source syncing issues.
It is recommended that students attend either the 2-Day DSLR for Video or 1-week DSLR Filmmaking prior to attending this course.
