Hi all -

For those of you interested in filmmaking and production, The Edit Center is excited to invite you to our upcoming Oct/Nov Documentary Filmmaking Intensive. This unique hands-on workshop will teach you the practical skills you need to tell great nonfiction stories. If you’ve always wanted to make a documentary and didn’t know where to start, or if you’ve made a documentary and want to take your craft to the next level, this class is for you.

This interactive class focuses on three core skills for making great documentaries: how to film compelling interviews, how to capture dynamic real-life scenes, and how to shoot effective b-roll footage while making the most of your budget.

We're very excited to have both Adam Bolt and Alan Oxman as the instructors for this class - check out their bios below for more information!

The class will run over two weekends - October 26-27 & November 2-3.

Adam Bolt is a Brooklyn-based documentary filmmaker. His credits include: editor and co-writer, Inside Job, 2011 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary; editor, writer, and senior producer of Showtime’s Emmy-award-winning documentary series "Years of Living Dangerously"; and editor and co-producer of The Recruiter (HBO), which won a Columbia duPont award for excellence in broadcast journalism in 2010. Most recently, he directed and produced the documentary Human Nature, which premiered at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival and will be showing on BBC Storyville later this year.

Alan Oxman is a documentary film producer and editor. He produced Children Underground (Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary), Page One: Inside the New York Times (HBO Films), and The Punk Singer (Magnolia Films) and was post-production supervisor on Inside Job (Academy Award for Best Documentary 2011). His editing credits include Unzipped (Winner Audience Award for Best Documentary Sundance Film Festival), supervising editor for Control Room (Winner Best Documentary Full Frame film festival) and consulting editor for No End in Sight (Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary).
