From concept to creation to screening – see your first film realized in just 10 short weeks! Our DIY Documentary class guides students through the stages of producing a short film with technical support and an emphasis on storytelling. Students work solo or collaboratively outside of class to shoot and edit their films. Editing software is available at NW Doc, or students may work on their own. DIY films are screened at Homegrown DocFest on May 25th. Must have digital editing experience or sign up for an Editing 101 workshop.
