Film Workshop Part II: Filming on Location

February 10, 2018

After scouting locations and identifying interview subjects, the students head out to do some quality filming!



On the first day of the workshop, the students were introduced to art of the documentary film, and spent the second half of the day scouting locations and talking to locals. The students then spent the second day of the workshop learning about filming equipment and techniques. On the third day they put everything together and went out into the field to get some quality interviews and footage.

That same group also stayed up late to film the stars. When asked about her experience with filming, Cindy said: “shooting the night sky was challenging and cool, because we stayed there for around 5 hours! We went around 10 o’clock and got back at 3 o’clock, it was cold, but it was worth it.” WechatIMG87
