We’ve all had these great ideas, now how we turn these captivating subjects into viable documentary films?
On Saturday, October 21, Christopher Metzler (PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE: THE STORY OF FISHBONE) will present a Documentary Production 101 workshop that will introduce students to the crucial issues of producing and directing a documentary film.
Topics include selecting a provocative topic, researching the subject, writing a proposal, fundraising, pre-production, casting, directing, shooting, interview techniques, ethics, editing and distribution. Students are encouraged to bring a one-page description of their ideas for feedback. If you’ve ever been interested in making a movie, documentary or fiction, this class will help you get started. Registration is $25, or $20 for students/ teachers/ seniors/ military/ TFA members. (Class is free for VIP TALLPass and Sponsor passholders, on a first-come, first-serve basis.)
