WRITING THE DOCUMENTARY FILM
FOUR-WEEK ONLINE COURSE
Starts Thursday, February 16, 2016
Documentary films can question an event, profile a person, and uncover a secret. They can expose truths and tell the truth about how lives are lived throughout the world. They can influence and inspire and provoke. Documentary writing requires research and an understanding of the audience’s expectations, and how the writer can keep an open mind when challenged by the unforeseen, including the exposing of surprising material and interview subjects’ unexpected responses. This course will examine and offer specific strategies for writing and planning a documentary.
