The School of Doc, launched in 2011 by Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, is a completely free program (including meals) serving Durham Public Schools students in grades 9-12 who participate in the five-week intensive summer course taught by professional filmmakers. The program is held in Full Frame’s theater and classroom space, where students work as a crew to produce a professional documentary film. Coursework includes all technical elements of the craft: camera, lights, sound, editing, and special effects, as well as pre- and post-production considerations such as rights and clearances, graphics and credits. Each School of Doc student spends time working in each of these areas. Please share this information with the appropriate staff and students. More information about the program, along with the application, can be found here. The deadline to apply is May 1.
