DIY Program & Workshops
NW Documentary’s flagship course is DIY Documentary: a 10-week journey to create a short film from start to finish. We welcome students ages 15 and up with all levels experience to tell a story that is meaningful to them, expressing their personal vision and style using the latest digital tools. Supplementary Editing coursework (Premiere or Final Cut X) and Camera/Lighting courses support the DIY student in achieving their vision. The class culminates in a screening of DIY films at the Clinton Street Theatre.
In addition to DIY we offer classes on a variety of subjects rotating by term, including: Capturing Audio, After Effects, Research and Documentaries, Grantwriting for Artists, Legal issues and the Arts, Interviewing Techniques and more. We keep classes small and flexible and invest a great deal of personalized attention in our students, customizing workshops to meet their learning pace, style, and passions.
