In this class, we will take skills and insights gained in introductory production courses and develop them over the length of the semester through the creation of one short documentary project, 10 minutes long. We will explore the ethical questions and ambivalences inherent in this medium, seeking complex answers to difficult questions about representation and the often blurry lines between fiction and non-fiction. We will watch documentaries each week, films that introduce us to new ideas both in their content and in their form. Come with your idea; we will hit the ground running with proposed writing the first week. Prerequisites: Beginning Video Production. Application and permission of the instructor required. Enrollment limited to 12.
