Finding the heart of a documentary is the work of this postproduction course. Students organize and order their footage and screen selects, rough cuts, and fine cuts in class in order to gain a sense of their work in its entirety. Pick-up shoots, archival material, music, and sound design are considered when relevant. Classes include lectures/screenings about giving shape to a film so that disparate footage is transformed into coherent, distilled, powerful cinema. Students discover what is most engaging about their material as they study ways of storytelling and expression through time. They finish the term with a working cut of a documentary project of up to 20 minutes in length.
