Intro to Documentary Production Workshop

A hands-on Saturday workshop for first-time filmmakers to learn how to make a short documentary.

This hands-on class for new filmmakers focuses on how to plan, shoot and edit a short documentary. We provide access to video cameras and the Adobe Premiere editing system, as well as instruction and guidance in how to plan for production, get good shots, and prepare for and carryout an edit. Participants will also develop skills in working in a small crew and will come out of the workshop with a 3-5 minute profile piece drawn from the local community.



Earlybird Registration (through August 24) – $595
Regular Registration (August 24-September 4) – $615
Late Registration (September 5 until full) – $625

Advanced registration is highly recommended.

Registration online is required even if you plan to pay by check. Note that pricing dates are based on when full payment is received, not the date of registration.
