Documentary Filmmaking

Documentary Filmmaking

Our creative Documentary Filmmaking course is the perfect introduction to the art of documentary filmmaking. Your challenge throughout this film course will be to research, shoot and edit your very own short documentary under the guidance of an expert documentary filmmaker.

During our short course, you will explore the rich genre of documentary film, developing a greater understanding of the form and documentary filmmaking techniques. You’ll then learn practical filmmaking skills on the job, as you and your classmates form a production crew, rotating roles to gain maximum experience.

You will have the option of either deciding on a fresh concept for your documentary as a group, or alternatively you have the unique resource of City Academy’s creative classes at your disposal for potential subject matter.

This course is perfect for beginners, those with some technical experience, or anyone who has an interest in how documentaries are made.

Documentary Filmmaking Course Content

During our Documentary Filmmaking Course, you will cover:

  • Storytelling techniques, as well insights into directing, rhythm and pace in documentary work
  • Different visual styles in documentary films and their effects
  • How to research and plan documentaries
  • Storyboarding and creating a convincing narrative
  • How to capture great sound when making a documentary
  • How to plan and get the most out of interview subjects
  • Editing video and audio, introduction to Adobe Premiere

You will receive friendly guidance and feedback from your tutor throughout this short course.
