Documentary Story Structure and Post Production Course

Back to Programme

Post production is often the hardest part of documentary production. Many people have no idea where to start when faced with a lot of footage. However, when the filmmaker takes a disorganized cluster of footage, turns it slowly into a touching story, he transforms chaos into art, and the post production editing turns into an interesting process.

This course teaches story structure, basic editing techniques, and introduces how to write a proposal, festival submissions and distribution methods.
