Not available in 2024
*Although Documentary Filmmaking is not available in 2024, you might like to instead do the hands-on Filmmaking Fundamentals course that will hold you in good stead for Documentary Filmmaking with its emphasis on lighting, sound, camera movement, interview techniques and B roll footage.
Documentary Filmmaking - Researching, Writing, Producing & Directing
Documentaries tell stories about the world around us but do they capture the truth or alter it according to who is telling the story? Learn how to research and develop ideas, storytelling techniques, how to structure your ideas and how to interview and work with non-actors. What impact does digital technology have on how documentaries are made and seen. Learn how to script, pitch and fund your documentary and get your work onto the screen and into festivals. Learn which networks buy what and find out the new trends in documentary filmmaking. (Documentary editing is covered in Principles of Editing in Script to Screen course but will be revised).
We will also cover Producing and Production Management on day 2 of the Documentary course.
Conducted by Sarah Barton, Writer/Director (Untold Desires, Secret Fear, Wing and A Prayer, More Than Horseplay) and Veronica Sive, Producer/Production Manager (The Tipping Points, Unleash the Best, Outback Opera, Make it Real).
9.30 am to 5.30 pm all days.
