About : Hands-on documentary filmmaking

During this very intensive workshop, you will tackle the fundamentals of documentary filmmaking and will take the first steps towards becoming an independent filmmaker. Following a short period of technical initiation, analysis of reference films, location scouting and writing, everyone then begins shooting a short film based on a common theme. The editing (assisted by professional editors) also allows you to assess the essential relationship between filmmaker and editor.
