Documentary Filmmaking Program – 6 Months

Our 6-Month Documentary Filmmaking Program is designed for training students who are ready to delve into the world of non-fiction digital filmmaking. Students entering this film course must come with a specific documentary project in mind that they will produce during the digital training program. The film course, like all the classes at FilmSchoolSF, is project-based. Students begin by learning the basics of camera, lighting, story development, proposal writing and interviewing skills. As students develop these skills they put them immediately into practice by creating a short documentary portrait of one of the characters in their longer film project. Students learn specific techniques for editing non-fiction films using Final Cut Pro.
