MAYMESTER: COMMUNITY LIFE DOCUMENTED

 

This program offers a unique opportunity to advanced, intermediate, and beginning students of videography to apprentice with an experienced documentary filmmaker and television news producer, while learning about the art, architecture, film, and history of London. Ultimately, they'll learn each of the steps essential to produce a compelling, high quality short documentary: identifying a subject, organizing the production, executing the scenes, writing the film and editing the final product. Students will work in small teams to identify a community in London to document, and work during the Spring semester to identify their subject and prepare for filming in London. A number of field trips, guest lectures and excursions are part of the program. Students will also enroll in a 1-hour seminar course during the Spring semester to group into teams, establish a cohort and their stories, and prepare for the program.
