Documentary Production integrates theory and practice to provide a critical understanding of the diversity of the documentary form. Students work in small groups to produce a series of films based in actuality and so discover the storytelling power and variety of the documentary film.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify documentary forms and production techniques;
2. Research and write documentary proposals;
3. Produce, direct, film and edit documentary productions; and
4. Identify ethical issues related to documentary production.
