Documentary Filmmaking 101


Are you captivated by the art of storytelling and aspire to bring compelling stories to life through the lens of a camera? Our Documentary Filmmaking Course, created by a filmmaker with over 30 years of experience, teaches you to master storytelling (90% of documentary filmmaking) by finding stories worth telling, capturing them effectively, and editing them into engaging narratives.

You’ll learn filmmaking fundamentals, from what to film and how to film it to honing your footage into a succinct, entertaining story. This course sends you on adventures only documentary filmmaking offers.

Join us to embark on your storytelling journey, and start turning your passion into compelling documentaries. In groups, you will plan, shoot, and edit an original short documentary.
