This eight-week course, led by producer/director Jennifer Maytorena Taylor, will take you through the steps of developing a feature documentary from conception and prep through production. You should come prepared with a project that you plan to produce and/or direct. Crafting a compelling proposal for funders will be a key goal of the course. Sessions will include presentations, interactive exercises, a case study with a renowned documentary filmmaker from the Sundance network, and a one-on-one mentoring session for each participant.
Applications will close on June 11, 2019 and the course will run Tuesdays, July 2-August 13 from 10AM-12PM PDT. Class sessions will be recorded for those who are unable to attend live.
