This summer CDS will offer its tenth annual Documentary Video Institute, our one-week video boot camp that has turned out over two hundred full-fledged documentarians. From June 15 through June 22, with expert guidance from multiple instructors, students will learn all aspects of video production: pre-production and scouting locations, camera operation, lighting and sound, editing and post-production, and finally, screening in front of a live audience.

Hours for the institute are:
Saturday, June 15: 2 p.m.–9 p.m.
Sunday–Friday, June 16–21: 9 a.m.–9 p.m.
Saturday, June 22: 10 a.m.–3 p.m. (Includes a public presentation of student work at 10:30 a.m. in the new Full Frame Theater in downtown Durham, North Carolina.)

Filmmaker Randolph Benson has been a Doc Video Institute instructor from the beginning. “The goal was for students to be able to come in and make a film, but then leave knowing how to make their own film,” he says. “So it was important to have all those elements crammed into a week. Some institute students have gone on to graduate programs in film, others have made films that have screened at film festivals around the world. “But mostly people use this as a stepping stone to self-expression,” says Benson.
