Change the World: Make a Social Issue Documentary

Milestone 1-2: 

Class Description: 

In this class, you will develop a concept for your own social issue documentary. You don't need any filming equipment. We are starting with the most important part of the film: the idea. 

I will be using my own documentary film SPECTRUM as an example throughout the class. 

Who is this class for?

Anyone who is curious about documentaries or excited about making a difference in the world. You don't need to be an experienced filmmaker. Just bring your heart and your mind.

Project: Create a log-line pitch for your documentary 

First, we will determine a social issue that matters to you. 

Then, you will find a real-life character to follow who is relevant to your cause. 

Finally, you will write a one-sentence log-line pitching the concept of your film. We'll use the project gallery to get feedback on your idea.

Extra Credit: Choose a photograph that helps depict your story and upload to the project gallery!
