Behind the Scenes: Documentary Filmmaking
What does it take to make and release a non-fiction film? The behind-the-scenes stories are often as incredible as the documentaries themselves. Students will screen some of the best documentaries made by renowned filmmakers who will join the class for a tell-all discussion. How did they raise money for their films? How did they convince their subjects to participate? How did they decide to craft and shape the story? What advice would they give aspiring filmmakers?
This is an opportunity to engage with a variety of professionals about the production and the art of independent documentary filmmaking. All films will be available for screening via Netflix or private Vimeo link. (Class size 10-16)

Students will learn the basics of screenwriting with a focus on screenplay format and the craft of storytelling, screenplay structure, dialogue, and effective description. Students will analyze the work of successfully produced screenplays to analyze what makes good writing and practice these techniques in short exercises to share with the group as well as complete generative writing exercises to get the ideas flowing.

The class culminates in a sharing of their work with feedback from peers and the teacher. (Class Size 8-10).
The Art of Storytelling

Since going online with most everything we do for work and to socialize these days, do you feel like the Zoom calls and Facetime don’t show your real self? Do you get nervous running a meeting at work? Do you want to ensure your message is well received on the radio, a podcast, or at your next fundraiser? Then the Art of Storytelling is the perfect first step for you! In this course, we will review the basics of storytelling and performance to ensure you are your best self in front of any group. Whether or not you want to work on confidence in preparing your next professional storytelling performance with Montclair Film Story Slam’s, this class will give you the tools you need to deliver high quality stories, performances, and content in whatever spaces you choose!
