Fresh for the Fall


Rachel Baron | August 23rd, 2018

There’s a lot to be excited about this fall in NYC. Liveable weather, midterm elections, a certain autumnal-flavored latte. In the spirit of beginnings, our DCTV Workshops crew has been hard at work planning some brand new educational offerings for the new season. Just the other week, we announced our Fall 2018 Workshops and opened registration.

Premiere: Intermediate delves further into Adobe’s versatile non-linear editing system. For those new to editing or seeking to change NLE’s, our new Fundamentals level workshop DaVinci Resolve: Editing is a great way to learn the basics. Pair Editing with DaVinci Resolve: Color Correction and you're well on your way to being able to edit and finish your project in one application!

Workshops Manager Amy Grumbling remarked, "There's a lot happening this fall that we're excited to unveil it to the community! I'm thrilled that we're bringing back the Docu Work-In-Progress Lab. It's a program that's near and dear to our hearts at DCTV, and having Yance Ford facilitate this year's Lab is a rare opportunity. Documentary Theory was offered for the first time in Summer 2018, and folks in that workshop really enjoyed watching selections from notable doumentaries and learning about the history and context of different documentary modes. We're pleased to offer it again this fall, with the wonderful Reiko Tahara as instructor again. It's a great workshop for documentary buffs and for filmmakers who want to explore new ways to approach their own work."

After a summer hiatus, we've also brought back Open Edit Hours to give students another opportunity to work on post for the projects they create in these workshops. Open Edit Hours are for anyone who has taken a workshop at DCTV in the past year, whether they want to work on a project of their own in our shared Media Lab, or take some time to brush up on software skills.

Plus, there will be some fresh faces in our instructor roster. Kasia Mychajlowycz, Producer of The Atlantic's first tech podcast, Crazy/Genius and Freakonomics Radio, will teach Audio Storytelling: Podcasts and Soundscapes this fall. Heather Martino, formerly Senior Producer at Teen Vogue, taught her first DCTV Workshop this summer and will now teach Premiere along with Camera Fundamentals. Director Chanelle Aponte Pearson is slated to teach Documentary Grant Writing. And that’s just to name a few!

And of course, our classic workshops like Camera Fundamentals and Production Week are still here for folks to dip their toes into or brush up on their shooting skills. A great place to start if you're new to our Workshops!

Stay tuned for more fall announcements. We hope to have you around the firehouse soon.

All workshops have limited enrollment and require registration in advance. See all of our Fall 2018 Workshops.
