Find, shoot and edit a short documentary project under the guidance of an experienced visual journalist.
DSLR cameras have revolutionized the way multimedia documentarians work, collapsing multiple mediums into one. Students in this workshop work directly with journalists who have first-hand experience shooting and editing DSLR video. Students learn the benefits and drawbacks of the camera through hands-on demonstrations, lectures and daily critiques. Additionally, instructors work directly with students to help them use the camera as a means to better tell documentary stories. As a goal over the course of the week, students find, create and shoot short documentary projects about the local community. Instructors also cover production workflow, file conversion and external audio source syncing issues. Gain the skills to put a great camera to affect!
Students should have a solid understanding of digital photography and Final Cut Pro X workflow. A basic understanding of video principles is also encouraged.
