Program: Make your own documentary
– 2 weeks (July 1st to 12th)

Objective: Shoot a documentary film in France; to meet a territory, a culture shared between tradition and modernity. Paris is both the city of light, the city of
monuments and museums, a millennial history, and it is also the capital of the 6th world economy. It is especially the place of a certain art of living, everywhere envied, terraces of bistrots to stroll on the banks of the Seine.

French documentaries have a singular place in world production: less formatted, more creative, they are among the few in the world to benefit from an international diffusion. Politics, history, nature, society, arts, docu-fiction: the French touch addresses all documentary genres and decompartmentalizes them. In 2017, the 56 French documentary films that were distributed in cinemas outside France accumulated 21 million admissions.

Our goal is to guide students in audiovisual, film or journalism, with the first concepts in shooting technique and writing, through a documentary project or reportage in the Paris
region, from production to editing. Each film crew consists of 3 to 4 students, who can make one or two films depending on the complexity of their projects. Each student has the opportunity to work on each position of a reporting team: director, camera, perch man, assistant director, then editing.
