Come learn with us! We will provide a fast overview course on how to produce video documentary. We’ll take participants inside and behind the scenes of our new feature documentary, Live from Mogadishu, filmed in Somalia and Kenya under tough security and logistical conditions, as well as our series, Journeys on the Edge, partly filmed in Bosnia, as well as Afghanistan, South Sudan, and Ukraine. We’ll also highlight other great works from recent documentary work, review process and equipment, and answer any of your questions about pre-production and production. If any participants wish to also learn about post-production, editing, and distribution of such films, please also sign up for the workshop on the following day. All revenue will also go to the War Survivors Advisory civilian protection project.
Daniel J Gerstle, founder of Humanitarian Bazaar, is the executive producer, director and editor of the feature film, Live from Mogadishu, about the campaign to end the war in Somalia, as well as producer and camera of the documentary series, Journeys on the Edge, telling the stories of how people survive tough situations in Afghanistan, Bosnia, South Sudan, and Ukraine. He also worked on films ranging from Watchers of the Skye (Edet Belzberg) to Filming Violence (Oxfam) to entertainment films.
