Introduction to Documentary Film Making
The documentary filmmaking program will introduce high school students to the theory, history and practice of documentary filmmaking. The class will emphasize how documentary film has been used to explore -and intervene in- issues of pressing social concern.
Applicants should be interested in filmmaking, interviewing and storytelling and want to make a change in the world. Throughout this two-week institute, students will work together to conceptualize, shoot, edit and produce a short documentary film.
Students in Commonwealth Honors College summer programs are highly motivated high school students from diverse backgrounds.
