The goal of the Documentary Outreach is for our crew to learn a reliable, replicable production process that they can continually leverage to tell engaging stories about real life anywhere around the globe. You are instructed in nonfiction storytelling that has a focus on visual, character driven narratives. Instructional briefings, led by our Documentary Producer, cover research methods, casting, dramatic elements, creating meaning, story outlines, shooting for visual motivation, interviewing techniques, ethical concerns, digital workflow, visual assembly, sound design and more. Every stage of production includes, formal instruction, hands-on workshops and field training.
Each traveler can direct their own film or join forces with others to form a creative team. All projects will be actively supported by the Outreach Producer. You learn how to execute every stage of the production process through creating your own work and assisting on the projects of others.
