Film by Bunny Laden and Talibah Aquil and Trent Maverick
Part of the CDS Courses Documentary Video Intensive, Summer 2019.
ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY VIDEO INTENSIVE ➤
In this eight-day intensive, students are fully immersed in the process of documentary filmmaking. Working in small production teams (one instructor for every four students) led by experienced documentary filmmakers, students are introduced to an array of tools and techniques as they collaborate with one partner to direct, shoot, edit, and screen a documentary short. By the time students arrive at the intensive, CDS staff will have arranged for students to do fieldwork in the Durham community on a documentary subject; the two-person teams then decide on the technical and creative approach they want to take with their project. This intensive will also explore different documentary genres and discuss collaboration, ethics, and community outreach. For more information about this CDS course, please visit cdscourses.org.
