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)
