Documentary in a day

Documentary in a day incursion


Documentary in a day is a new version of our pioneering program documentary. 

This full day Stage 2 incursion will introduce students to the process of creating a nature documentary using iPads and other filmmaking tools.

Working in groups of three, students will learn how to create amazing video imagery, narration and sound to inspire, motivate and educate.

Students will base their documentaries on research using a variety of multimodal resources. They will develop a script and storyboard. They will learn how to film and edit digital video on their journey to become the next David Attenborough.

Documentary in a day does not require any preparation before the incursion.

All resources and equipment provided including iPads, tripods, microphones, reflectors and digital multimodal texts.
