Advanced Documentary Production is a single-semester course that explores the history, conventions and modes that surround the documentary film form. Students apply this knowledge to produce creatively challenging work; the culmination being one finished non-fiction portfolio film project. Particular emphasis is given to the traditions of social criticism as well as the creative treatment of actuality through individual and collective points of view.
Students will research, develop and produce a short 3-9 minute film to be shot in either in Lodz, Poland, or in and around Pennsylvania. Students are required to spend time researching primary and secondary sources of their subject and developing a pitch, treatment and visual reference document. In addition, they will complete three feature film analyses to help prepare them for their own production. Upon return to University Park after Spring Break, students will edit and complete their film.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations at a hotel or hostel.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course, applications were due on October 18th, 2018, including questionnaire, and a 1-minute pitch video
