Introduction to Documentary Film
By exploring the differences and similarities between documentaries and fictional, feature films, this course unravels what makes a documentary unique in form and content within the motion picture medium. Central to a documentary is the moral ambiguity present within it. What are the ethics of a documentarian? How far is too far to get to the bottom of the story or reveal a subject? The subject being documented may be an individual, a cause, an issue or a trial in a sense. Often documentaries present events as facts. We, as an audience, are to decide what we believe or don’t believe about those facts. As students look at the different ways in which a documentarian can present his or her material, they will discover the ways in which the documentaries screened in class can be analyzed.

Mini Film School: The Nuts and Bolts of Visual Storytelling

We all love movies and television, so why not learn the basics of what goes into making a visual story? Throughout this course, students will cover the basics of camera and lighting. Students will be introduced to the various roles and titles on a film set and will talk about creating short scripts, commercials, and PSA’s (Public Service Announcements). Instruction will cover the techniques of camera movement and using lighting to increase the value of the story being told. All of this will build to final shoot in which students will work together to write, direct and film a short piece that they will edit and then critique in class. Students should bring their own DSLR or HD cameras; more information will be provided prior to the start of class.
