Breaking down hours of footage filmed for a documentary can be overwhelming. Sometimes footage was shot over years. Plus, some films require archival footage and photographs, animations, maps and graphics to tell the story. How do I best assemble these ingredients and come up with a workable rough cut? We’ll learn strategies on how to shoot efficiently and how to best organize the material for that rough cut. We’ll look at important steps in the pre-production, production and post-production phase that help control the process and we’ll discuss important documents like treatments, assembly records, editing scripts and final scripts.
