The Documentary Video Bootcamp is a one-week, immersive, hands-on experience in which
students learn the fundamentals of video documentary storytelling in an intimate and focused
setting. Students develop a basic understanding of shooting techniques, picture composition,
sound recording, lighting, interviewing, story structure, and editing. The course includes a brief
survey of documentary history along with coverage of the ethical challenges faced by
documentary makers. Through assignments, screening, discussion, and critique, students are
exposed to a range of aesthetic, storytelling, and technical issues related to the production of
short documentary videos. The course prepares students to begin making videos on their own and provides a solid foundation for further study.
