DSLR cameras have revolutionized the way multimedia documentarians work, collapsing multiple mediums into one. Students in this workshop work directly with journalists who have first-hand experience shooting and editing DSLR video. Through hands-on demonstrations, lectures and critiques, instructors show the benefits and drawbacks of the camera as a storytelling tool. Over the course of the week, students find, shoot and edit character-driven stories about the local community. Instructors cover production workflow, audio syncing issues and the techniques necessary to make this camera shine without the support of large crews or truckloads of gear.
