This is a rare opportunity to work directly with American Documentary Filmmaker Mary Lance.
During this three-hour workshop students will learn:
1) How a documentary project begins: Knowing the difference between a subject that interests you and one that you will spend years exploring.
2) How the project moves from inspiration to production: Development, research, finding people and locations, shooting.
3) How the story develops and comes to life in editing.
