Don led a very exciting workshop that engaged the group into thinking what processes goes into making a documentary short film. The group where introduced to the history of documentary for film. They were asked what is a Fact? How to create characters from factual and evidential materials. Where can we find sources of information from our historical media past? Word of mouth, press, photographs, written documentation.
This was a great insight into documentary films.
Jess "I really like the idea of making up a character from bits and bobs of random materials from my house"
Tyler "really interesting, I can use this new information in many areas"
