Join a Study Abroad Outreach program and you will travel to a foreign country, spend one month in a developing community and create a short documentary film about people who are changing the world.
Serving as either a Producer, Director, Cinematographer or Editor you will learn about creative nonfiction storytelling in the most hands-on way. The film you produce will also help a worthy changemaker launch themselves onto the international stage.
People interested in translating the local language for a project, or in photographing the changemaker and crew, should contact us for more details on the possibilities.
Outreaches consist of three crews each focusing on their own changemaker. An Actuality Media Production Supervisor will be on location to instruct, advise and support each crew member. Each Outreach functions very much as an internship program, and many participants have received internship credit through their university for participating.
The early decision application deadline is December 1st, 2014. The final application deadline is March 15th, 2015.
If you are interested in having an adventure and using your filmmaker powers for good, then read on.
