COMM 481 - DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING


Credits: Three
Prerequisite: Take COMM-332
This course provides an overview of documentary filmmaking techniques and will balance analysis of the films approaches with discussion of their implications. It will also foreground an understanding of documentary as a persuasive tool in order to prepare students to create their own short documentaries, produced in groups over the course of the semester. Instruction will be given on pre-production (designing and writing), production (filming), and post-production (editing and distribution).
