Watch Student Films from the 2012 Summer Video Institute

Every summer the Center for Documentary Studies holds a series of Documentary Institutes. The Documentary Video Institute is an eight-day intensive where students are fully immersed in the process of documentary filmmaking. Working in small production teams (one instructor for every four students) led by experienced documentary filmmakers, students are introduced to an array of tools and techniques as they collaborate with a partner to direct, shoot, edit, and screen a documentary short. Nationally known guest instructors teach classes and screen their work in evening sessions.

This year’s Documentary Video Institute was held June 9–16 at CDS. These student projects focused on the artist at work, from the verbal to the visual, and touch on all aspects of what it is that drives and inspires creation.
