Video Projects Seminar
Advanced | Taught by Jim Haverkamp
September 5–October 10
Center for Documentary Studies, Duke University
Course fee: $320.00

The Advanced Audio, Photography, and Video Projects courses provide documentary artists with the opportunity to work with award-winning professionals in small group settings. Each term, CDS invites three established artists to teach the Advanced Projects Seminars, which are designed for individuals who are working on projects and are seeking creative guidance. This is an opportunity for students in the certificate program to refine their work before applying for the Final Seminar. Participants are required to share excerpts from their works-in-progress, and the courses are designed around the specific needs of participants.

Different artists will teach the seminars each term, giving students the opportunity to hear multiple perspectives on their work. Students may take the course for credit more than once. This is also an ideal course for students who have completed the Certificate in Documentary Arts and are looking for professional advice to move forward in their careers, including information on finding resources (grants, fellowships, artist residencies) to support their work. Certificate students are required to take a seminar in their chosen concentration before enrolling in the Final Project Seminar.

Applied Documentary Editing with Final Cut Pro
Advanced | Taught by Jim Haverkamp
November 1–December 13
Center for Documentary Studies, Duke University
Course fee: $270.00

After taking CDS’s editing courses, are you hungry to test your skills in real-world situations? In this class, students will use real footage to solve a typical editing problem every week—dealing with a hum in the audio, cutting a 30-minute interview down to a two-minute web video, using graphics, working from a transcript, dealing with multiple-camera footage, and other topics as decided by the class. The emphasis will be on finding practical solutions to common problems. This course requires a good working knowledge of Final Cut Pro. Students must have taken both Introduction to Documentary Video Editing and Intermediate Documentary Video Editing, or have consent of the instructor, to enroll in the class. Editing will be done outside of class, and students will be expected to do editing homework assignments every week.
