COURSE OVERVIEW

Duration: 5 days, full-time
Hours: 10:00 - 17:00

Get the information you need to get your first documentary made. London Film Academy’s Documentary Foundation focuses on the difficulties that first-time documentary filmmakers are up against, providing the strategies and skills to ensure you get your project to the finish line.

Our course gives you an intensive overview of the documentary industry, including festivals, broadcasters and funding bodies. The week is made up of project consultations and group work designed to move your project forward. You look at how to film an interview discreetly, ethically and safely. In five days you cover:

  • Documentary development involving: researching “the story”, producing and conceptualising, scriptwriting, defining your audience and finding your key team
  • Pitching
  • Budgeting: considering crew size, camera format, sound set-up, length of shoot and postproduction
  • Production: from viewing and logging footage to producing a finished film ready for distribution
  • Key paperwork and example documents including: treatments, release forms, schedules and permissions
  • Directing
  • Post-production: case studies are used to explain different production strategies
  • Exhibition, distribution and broadcast strategies

We offer you practical advice on developing a documentary film career, emphasising the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach and looking at new strategies for making, presenting and distributing in new formats. You can apply with an idea or a project already in development, but more importantly we want to see your enthusiasm and desire to learn.
