Documentary Workshop
Do you have a great idea for a documentary, but no idea how to bring your idea from concept to the screen? Do you want invaluable production techniques that can make your projects more professional? This four-week course will teach you the basics of producing documentaries for television, and help make your film broadcast-quality. You will get professional guidance and instruction from international festival winner and three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Rudaitis. Ron has produced and directed many successful documentaries, including The Italian Americans, episodes of ESPNs SportsCentury, A Bridge Between Silence and Sound, and Farming the Future: Farm Life on Long Island, which recently received an Emmy Nomination for Best Documentary. His films have aired on over 250 public and commercial television stations throughout the country.
