Featured Workshop: Filming the World

by - Monday, October 01, 2012

Do you have an urge to document textiles, fibers, craft techniques, or even your own projects? Are you curious how making a visual record turns into a documentary?
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.
