Westermann, is pleased to partner with the Hyde Park Art Center to host Documentary Video Boot Camp, an eight session filmmaking workshop. Through illustrative examples from various films, this hands-on class will explore dynamic techniques in documentary filmmaking. Throughout the class, we will address different phases of the production process, including pre-production, cinematography, and editing, as well as a final session on documentary ethics.

This class will appeal to: documentarians interested in workshopping a project; artists, curators, and conservators who wish to learn best practices for using video for documentation and marketing purposes; and first-time filmmakers looking for a crash course on production essentials. All experience levels are welcome!
