WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

Our seasoned documentary filmmakers at Chocolate Films’ will offer an intense and exciting workshop in documentary making. The focus will be themed around investigating a current event, situation or real-life experience. Participants will discover how best to research and develop this theme into a gripping and well-balanced documentary narrative.

Participants will choose their theme and then develop it into a narrative and learn documentary skills in presentation, interview technique and the different ways in which to visually illustrate the story. Participants will find their contributor(s) and film their interviews as a group. They will film additional shorts and collect archive footage as necessary and then edit their footage together into gripping short documentary content.
