IFP Summer Camps 2016: Documentary Camp (ages 13-17)
Starts July 11
Monday–Friday, July 11–15, 12–4 pm
Wim Wenders says it’s imperative that filmmakers “rescue the existence of things” and that through documenting we are ensuring “the fact of the subject’s existence hasn’t been lost.” In this documentary camp we’ll choose one aspect/event/memory of everyday life that we’ll rescue from non-existence. We’ll practice observation of the world around us as well as effective composition to interpret what we see. By the end of the week we’ll complete a documentary in which each student will have played a vital role.
