In this workshop, you will discover the basic fundamentals of directing a documentary film- how to create story structure, researching and interviewing techniques, narrative choices, and capturing footage and b-roll. You will also learn concepts that help maximize knowing what kind of story you want to tell, how to build trust with the subjects you’re documenting, types of questions to ask and what shoot days will look like.

He completed a Bachelor of Education at the University of Manitoba and a Master of Adult Education from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. His dramatic, animated, and documentary films have reached audiences internationally at festivals, on television and on the web.
