Rocking Docs: Documenting Real World Stories
Are you fascinated with the world around us? Learn how to craft nonfiction stories in this weeklong camp for students ages 9-12.
July 18 - 22, 2022
In this week of SIFF Filmmaking Camp, we're turning our lenses to document the world around us. Learn how to craft stories based on real world sources—practice skills like interviewing, researching, shooting b-roll, and framing subjects.
In small groups of 3-6, students (ages 9-12) will learn the basics of working together as a documentary production crew: writing scripts, interviewing subjects, using accessible filmmaking technology, digital editing, and more. At the end of the week, students’ short films will be "in the can" and we will celebrate with a Friends and Family Film Festival in the SIFF Film Center theater. Finished films will be able to be viewed online or downloaded to share.
