This workshop will allow people to do that, as well as providing examples of other famous documentarians.”
The Class Will Cover The Following Topics:
- Finding Your Story

This class will be a well structured and comfortable working environment, no idea is too small, and everyone will work in groups to achieve a final film product. The final films will be shown on the last day of class Wednesday, March 27th.
