The online version of the course is also addressed to beginners who want to learn the technicalities of camera use, editing and sound recording, applied to the specific perspective of ethnographic documentary. The key differences from what we’d usually run in person have to do with the timetable, which is spread over three evenings for four weeks, and with the equipment – students are expected to work with their own equipment (anything from a smartphone to a camera, and a computer with some editing software – there are free options). The course is taught by Lorenzo Ferrarini and GCVA staff, and support from two assistants. It includes a dedicated website with videos, links and other information.

The total cost is set at £600 (standard fee) and £400 for students and concessions (unemployed, University of Manchester staff).

Indicative timetable:

Each session will be live online on Zoom around 4-7pm UK time (some sessions might be shorter). There will also be practical independent work that you’ll be asked to do in between sessions.
