In this unit students will undertake the production of a documentary either initiated by them or offered by external organisations. This production will be undertaken in teams using appropriate strategies for collaboration in creative teams. This process will include the development of a proposal encompassing an exploration of the sources of documentary ideas, individual perspectives, the relationship between themes and social institutions and balancing the needs of sponsors and audiences. Treatments will be developed through several drafts that respond to feedback and critique. Students will then plan, schedule and shoot their productions. The post-production process will involve regular critical screenings through which students will explore the formal and structural demands of documentary story-telling.

Documentary Proposal and Treatment (1500 words) 30%
