PRODUCING: It is a genre of movie making that uses video & film scenes, photographs and/or sound of real people and real events which when edited together creates a particular story, viewpoint, message or experience.
WRITING: It's a combination of writing – conceptualizing – and allowing things to happen that you can't predict. That's how virtually every documentary is created, and it also is how virtually every fiction film is created. You start from a blueprint, and then you allow cinema to happen
LIGHTING: With what you have: You don't have to have a professional film camera to create great content. We are going to show you how to create with what you have.
DIRECTING: Directing a documentary is one of the most important parts of producing a documentary and can be very rewarding . We will teach you the fundamentals of directing yourself and others.
EDITING: Film editors assemble footage of feature films, television shows, documentaries, and industrials into a seamless end product. They manipulate plot, score, sound, and graphics to refine the overall story into a continuous and enjoyable whole.
