9. Learn to Make Documentary Films

Have you considered creating a film documentary describing an aspect of your research, or the work of your department? Perhaps you would like to make your work more accessible to a general audience through a video on your web site. Perhaps you need a video addendum to your thesis or publication?

OUCS, in collaboration with the Oxford Academy of Documentary Film is running five-day workshops that will teach you the basic skills in creating a short documentary.

We cover:

  • How to use a video-camera
  • Properly capturing sound with a microphone
  • Setting up and performing an interview
  • How to shoot for editing a film
  • How to use the basic editing features of Final Cut Pro
  • Outputting your final documentary for a variety of delivery platforms

The workshops are run by experienced film documentary makers who have worked with major broadcasting organisations throughout the world.

The cost is £650 and includes the use of all equipment, documentation, lunches and refreshment. The emphasis is on learning practical skills in a small group and so places are very limited.
