We have just completed a 3 week short documentary training course with Bent Marble, run by Steve Clack. 12 participants completed the course by making a short documentary on a range of topics including local heroes and biographies about local artists/people in the community.
Participants learned about pre- production, techniques for filming and interviewing, and editing. As we all teaching from Steve, local professionals contributed to the collaborative learning space, and the class formed the beginnings of a network of filmmakers in which experienced professionals were sharing knowledge and experiences with beginners. John and Louise Riber from Media for Development International also shared their expertise with the class.
