Project Published 11/12/13 Last updated on 5/16/18
Documentaries attempt to represent reality rather than tell a fictional story. Documentaries are essentially nonfiction film. In this project, students work in teams to create a mini-documentary: identifying the theme, audience, and goals for a particular topic. Within each team, students manage tasks from a particular filmmaking role perspective. In the process of making a minidocumentary, students learn to create advanced motion and color effects, use audio-editing techniques, and compose a musical score. Finally, each team will present their film in a student film festival.
