FNMS 280 - Documentary Storytelling

As online distribution has contributed to a golden age of short form non-fiction filmmaking, it is imperative that aspiring filmmakers and media-makers become fluent in the aesthetics and story potential of the documentary form. Documentary Storytelling is an intensive hands-on introduction to the art and craft of short form documentary production. Students will produce two documentary projects, engage in a variety of in-class filmmaking exercises and challenges, study a variety of films and texts, and critique each other’s work.
