REGISTER NOW — Narrative Storytelling for Documentary Filmmaking-Workshop — Starting 01/28

Discover your identity as a storyteller and focus on the stories that matter most to you and that you can best tell. Learn how to successfully structure compelling narratives with a scene-based, character-driven approach. With this hands-on course, you will also learn how to avoid the pitfalls of stories that tell rather than show, that leave your viewer passive rather than engaged.

Through a dynamic combination of in-class presentations, technique-building exercises, and informative discussions, you will experience the process of researching, developing, planning, structuring, and scripting a story for production. We will explore the various genres of documentary filmmaking and see how stories evolve through the stages of pre-production, production, and post-production.
