Community Documentary Filmmaking Workshop


Bring Your World Into Focus



The Community Documentary Filmmaking Workshop focuses on community filmmaking--creating documentaries about the people, history, landscape, challenges, and opportunities that are special about a town or neighborhood. Documentary filmmaker Michad Holliday will supply you with the tools and skills you'll need to tell your story: basic cinematography, camera operation, story development, interviewing techniques, sound recording, and editing. Your movie will be shown at the T Tauri Film Festival Finale Screening on Saturday evening, July 31. Students who have their own cameras are encouraged to bring them.


The registration deadline is July 10, 2010.
