About The Workshop

This three-week HD workshop runs twice a year in Cape Town, South Africa and is designed for those who want to learn documentary filmmaking top to bottom in an intensive setting.

Past participants have included new and established filmmakers, writers, journalists, artists, photographers, graphic designers, theater actors and directors, musicians, educators and non profit organizations. Previous experience with filmmaking is NOT required. Producers, cinematographers, editors and writers with narrative experience who are considering working in non-fiction filmmaking are also encouraged to enroll. Photojournalists and print journalists who are looking to make the move to video journalism should strongly consider this workshop.

Students learn all aspects of the process including the importance of the still image, HD cameras, compact lighting methods, wireless mics, how to structure and weave the story and how to edit in the field with Final Cut Pro using a Macbook Pro.
