Two-Week Documentary Workshop – Mississippi Delta – February 2012
Dates: February 12th – 26th, 2012
This two-week HD workshop runs twice a year in the heart of the Mississippi Delta and is designed for those who want to learn documentary filmmaking top to bottom in an intensive setting.
Past participants have included new and established filmmakers, writers, journalists, artists, photographers, graphic designers, theater actors and directors, musicians, educators and non profit organizations. Previous experience with filmmaking is NOT required. Producers, cinematographers, editors and writers with narrative experience who are considering working in non-fiction filmmaking are also encouraged to enroll. Photojournalists and print journalists who are looking to make the move to video journalism should strongly consider this workshop.
Students learn all aspects of the process including the importance of the still image, HD cameras, archives, compact lighting methods, wireless mics, how to structure and weave the story and how to edit in the field with Final Cut Pro.

Barefoot Workshops is a New York City-based not-for-profit 501(c)3, founded in 2004, that offers short, intensive workshops around the world in narrative and documentary filmmaking. We assist organizations and individuals to use media, music and the arts, to accelerate progress and program goals in areas such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, conflict resolution, resettlement, youth empowerment, civil rights, and democracy building. We have worked with partners as diverse as UNESCO, Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation, The U.S. State Department and The Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), to pioneer new formats and “media templates” that reinforce citizen-led, community-owned solutions to these challenges.
The main goal of Barefoot Workshops is to equip students with the knowledge and confidence to use the latest and most sophisticated equipment while having a foundation that allows a person to create beautiful images and story, regardless of the tools. At Barefoot, growing and learning as a filmmaker means growing and learning as an individual.
