Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to a documentary film production class at George Washington University (GWU). I showed some clips from past projects and we talked a lot about lighting. I was grateful to have the opportunity to do a little teaching as well as answer some really great questions posed by the students. Favorite questions included, “What do you do when everything you planned or expected falls apart?” or “Have you ever had a source who would not talk to you?” and “How do you get people to trust you when your in their face with a camera?”
I think we have some great documentarians in the making!
