WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

This workshop is a unique opportunity to be part of Chocolate Films’ Flagship documentary project 1000 Londoners, the largest documentary project ever produced about a city. During the workshop, participants produce a documentary portrait film of a maximum of three minutes about a person living in London that is important to their community.

Participants work with close guidance from our facilitators to plan, shoot and edit their documentary. We shoot on location taking in turns to direct, interview the subject, operate the camera and record sound. The workshops are fun, fast-paced, and very practical. Participants need to think on their feet and actively problem solve. The workshop finishes with the creation of the Londoner’s web page for the site.
