This intensive course has been specially devised in order to inspire participants to make their own documentary within the four-week period. In the mornings students watch, analyse and discuss a selection of canonic documentaries, in order better to comprehend the the genre and mechanics of the documentary form. The afternoons, and weekends, are spent filming.
The Summer School is open to students from the UK, continental Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand who are currently studying for, or have graduated from, a degree in film studies, media studies, Hispanic/Latin American studies or other relevant areas. You do not need to be a student from UCL to take this course. You do not need practical experience in filmmaking to take this course. You do not need to speak Spanish as translation is available.
