Documentary Film Note

Still thinking about my documentary course this spring and just wanted to jot down a few notes. First, an indieWire blogger mentions two screenings he attended at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam.

I’m still operating under the assumption that the course will run more smoothly if all the documentaries I show are available on DVD, especially given that not all students will be able to attend screenings, but I’m still working on the list of films that I’ll teach. I’m now almost completely certain that the course will culminate with a group project in which students produce a short documentary film using Georgia Tech’s cameras and editing equipment (iMovie and Final Cut Pro) available in the library. I’ll be thinking about these issues a lot over the next few days now that my travel and writing schedule have slowed down a bit.

I’m finding it strange to return to a somewhat normal blogging schedule this week. More later as I move towards deciding which films to show and what essays/books to assign.
