Whether making a documentary, narrative or even experimental film, it’s essential to remember the golden rule of engaging your audience… Show Don’t Tell. Film is a visual medium. What your audience sees on the screen will have a greater impact than anything that is said. We've seen way too many films fail because they don't follow this simple, but often overlooked, concept. This course will illuminate the techniques you need to give your audience a true visual experience while communicating your story.
