UPGRADE FROM AMATEUR TO DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER

After teaching some version of this workshop in 13 countries, I’ve tried to jam pack this hour-long session with only the most important creative lessons that I would teach anyone who wants to start shooting a documentary today. There’s no reason you can’t start right now, probably with the equipment you already have.
