The Art of Visual Storytelling
With: Ed Kashi
When: March 10 – 15, 2019
Category: Documentary, Video and Multimedia
Compelling narratives begin with compelling material, and this intimate five-day workshop invites participants to open their eyes to new possibilities for meaningful visual storytelling.
Under the guidance of award-winning photojournalist and filmmaker Ed Kashi, we explore innovative ways of connecting to subjects that inspire us and create engaging narratives using the tools at our disposal: photography, motion, and sound.
Through presentations of still images, multimedia material, and short films, Ed encourages participants to consider the full range of opportunities available for self-expression. He also places special emphasis on helping you develop your vision and personal style. To that end, he shares examples of his own work, from commissions for NGOs and foundations to editorial assignments for major publications such as National Geographic, Time, and The New Yorker. During collaborative feedback sessions, we engage in individual and group critiques of work we create during the workshop, as well as existing personal projects.
Discover how to engage with a subject that ignites your passion and document it in a unique and compelling way. If you’re a still photographer or short documentary filmmaker who wants to grow and develop your video work, this workshop will change your life.
