This workshop is a unique opportunity to be part of Chocolate Films’ Flagship documentary project 1000Londoners.com, the largest documentary project of a city online. During the workshop, participants produce a 3min documentary portrait film 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 think on their feet and actively problem solve.
