Documenting the lives of others is an unexpected journey. Telling the stories of the silenced, of the underprivileged, uncovering those stories left untold or hidden, is more than merely an opportunity or an honor; it can be one's life mission. Documentaries are moving, compelling, entertaining, and funny, equally if not more so, than fiction, as they are made from the fabric of 'real' life. In the 21st century, those who produce interesting and innovative content and stories have the potential to shape the agenda 'de jour'. As such, this workshop will focus on storytelling based on documentary content told using a wide variety of platforms: documentary web series, documentary films, documentary televisions series, and documentary crossplatform projects. Stories that aim to document reality, mold it, change it, influence it, through the medium as well as through the content. In addition, we will examine the documentarist's place in dealing with social, cultural, and political issues and explore the extent to which the camera affects the documented reality. This workshop develops different approaches to documentary storytelling, research, fieldwork, directing, photography, editing, and other practical aspects of production. We will focus particular attention on finding the correct platforms for the created documentary content. This workshop will combine lectures and fieldwork, structuring and reviewing the participants' working process – from research to scripting, shooting, and editing.
