department and center for new media at the University of Southern
Colorado. I teach documentary producation and have been invovlved in
producing/shooting/editing docs since the mid 80's. Currently my
documentary class is in production of two documentaries; one on
skydiving, and the other about our local mental health facility and the
changes in treatment in the past 4-5 decades.
We are shooting in DVCam and editing using non-linear editing. We are
quite fortunate to have high quality equipment to work with...after
many years of S-VHS and cuts-only editing!
My students are studying the documentary genre, watching a lot of
classics, writing papers on documentary directors, and producing half-
hour projects...while taking other classes and working. It's quite a
busy semester for them to say the least.
Anyone else out there who teaches the documentary production process?
I'm using Rabinger's book (have done so for 6-7 years) and love it.
Looking forward to the dialog-
