Longterm Documentary Project
Students research, produce and develop visual and conceptual strategies for storytelling through intensive presentations, editing sessions, discussion and critique. Through group discussions and one-on-one critiques, participants focus on a variety of important topics, including: research and/or production of a long-term project, editing and sequencing of existing material, writing a statement about the work and envisioning future forms for the project from publication to exhibition. Special attention is given to establishing partnerships for funding and disseminating the work. In addition, attention to the specific projects is balanced by conversations about professional practice and the broader industry.
