The Documentary Filmmaking Workshop is designed to introduce the members to how documentary films are made. Students will be given a step-by-step look at how documentaries are put together. Various styles of documentary filmmaking will be discussed, with excerpts of films shown to demonstrate the different styles of filmmaking. The course will be a practical guide to documentary filmmaking. Included in the workshop will be discussions about interviewing, release forms, festivals and more.
Members are encouraged to have an idea for a documentary film that they would like to make to discuss with the instructor. Students should also bring a list of questions to ask the instructor about documentary filmmaking.
Alexandre Larose is a French-Canadian artist based in Montreal. While completing a bachelor in mechanical engineering in 2001, Larose became interested in cinematography as a tool to re-configure temporal experiences. His moving-image practice investigates phenomena of appearance and representation as translated by the media of optics and celluloid. His approach relies on a methodical stripping out of layers embedded in both the live subjects and the technique that translates them into visual artifacts. His work has screened internationally since 2006.
Enrolment for this class is limited, and will be on a first come, first serve basis. If you’d like more information, or would like to register for the workshop, please contact our Membership Coordinator at 613.569.1789 or at .
