Documentary Filmmaking: Crafting Your Story in Post
Registration is open until July 30, 2050

In documentary filmmaking, the story is largely crafted after the footage has been shot. Learn how to develop your film’s story in the edit room, with an accomplished documentary filmmaker as your guide. This eight-week live, online course is ideal for directors, producers, or first-time feature editors at the post-production stage on a current documentary project.

The course will cover developing your story/script and crafting your scenes; post-production workflow; using music, sound, and graphics/archival materials; as well as strategies for distribution and impact campaigns after the film is complete. Sessions include presentation and discussion, interactive exercises, workshopping of each participant's work-in-progress, and a special guest presenter from the Sundance network. The course concludes with a one-on-one mentoring session focused on your project.
