PART II - INTRO TO DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING WORKSHOP W/LIVE DEMOS & FILM
We are continuing the second part of last week's Introduction to Documentary
Filmmaking Workshop. This workshop will cover the remaining sections as well
as introduce more filmmaking topics. THIS WORKSHOP IS REQUIRED FOR ANY
FILMMAKER WHO WISHES TO BENEFIT FROM AFC'S SERVICES AND SUPPORT NETWORK.
Friday July 9, 2004 - 10am-7pm. Please note that there is a 5 JD fee for
anyone arriving after 10:30am. After 12pm, 10 JD.
FREE to students who are continuing the July 2 workshop and to existing AFC
members. Others must pay 10 JD to attend, or wait for the next Intro to
Filmmaking Workshop to participate for free. Students who confirmed for past
AFC events and did not show up or did not cancel on time will be subject to
an additional 5 JD fee. THE CHARGES ARE CUMULATIVE.
The AFC takes filmmaking very seriously. We also take our students and
volunteers' time equally seriously. In the past, our late-arrival policy has
been relaxed, resulting in serious delays in workshop start and finish times
and under-attended workshops, causing our punctual students to miss
important sections of the workshop because of time slippage.
