This is a co-requisite course with SAC 320 Documentary Studies, which covers the theory and history aspects of nonfiction film and video. Students must take both courses, which allow them to thoroughly integrate documentary study and production. SAC 301 is geared toward intermediate filmmaking students who would like to explore and develop their own interests in documentary practice in dialog with inquiries into the ways in which artists and theorists have historically approached this mode of filmmaking.
Enrollment is limited to 18
*Please note, students also must enroll in SAC 320.
Students are expected to complete individual projects as well as participate in group exercises. Students will produce their own work and, if needed, crew for other class members. A top priority of the course is screening works-in-progress for critique. The linkage with SAC 320 provides students a unique opportunity to bring practice into theory.
