Learn documentary shooting techniques, on-camera reporting, off-camera interview skills, journalistic writing, and documentary editing. Develop a documentary concept, or bring one, and shoot footage to be analyzed and edited over two workshop sessions. Participants may use VIVO’s video cameras, or bring their own.

During Session 1, learn how to get a great interview by setting up lights, operating camera and microphones, and developing appropriate questions.

For homework, shoot some footage to use for session two. Don’t have a camera to finish homework? Participants with a Producer Membership (Basic or Extended) receive a 50% discount toward rental of one of VIVO’s cameras.

For Session 2, bring in your footage and learn how to develop a solid structure by editing a short news story with a voiceover and on-camera introduction.

Prerequisites: Suitable for those who have previously attended VIVO’s Video Editing or Camera, Lights, Sound workshops, or those familiar with the basics of video production and post-production.

Flick Harrison (flickharrison.com) is a writer, media artist, filmmaker, hacker and drone pilot in Vancouver. “I’ve explored boundaries of all kinds in media, politics, education and the arts for over twenty years.  As an artist, I explode the aesthetics of political conflict; as an educator, I try to make media flow organically from the social.  My ambition is to lead, support and challenge non-profits, schools, community groups and other progressive actors to improve their understanding and use of media, all while having fun.”
