John Hawks smaller

Learn the art of compelling, concise nonfiction storytelling with video!

Through hands-on experience, participants will creatively work to tell a complete story, efficiently and effectively. The workshop will be based on broadcast journalism principles, but can be applied to all types of shorter form documentary and scripted filmmaking projects.  Great preparation for the JAM 48 Hour Film Slam in May!
