This year’s program is designed specifically to allow each person that attends to learn true non-fiction, documentary filmmaking from some of the best documentary filmmakers in the industry.
The program will include craft based training and Master Classes from world renowned documentary filmmakers such as Chuck Workman, Susan Froemke and David Zieff. All filmmakers whose body of work is not only widely recognized but also highly regarded. They have all taught their craft for many years and will bring their passion and knowledge of documentary filmmaking to the program.
In addition to the three days of Master Classes, the program will include sessions on camera, lighting, sound, scouting locations and shooting & conducting interviews.
Students will also work together to produce their own documentary films (shot in New York City), and will then edit (individually), and screen their docs as part of the program. All this plus the core TFMI team who will teach and oversee the entire intensive.
