Have a documentary in-progress that needs a fresh set of eyes?Applications due 9/25 for DCTV’s Docu Work-In-Progress Lab http://ministryofhappiness.org/2018/02/purchase-kemadrin-spc/ – Five filmmakers will be selected to workshop their documentary rough cuts in an intimate lab facilitated by editor Carla Gutierrez, with Kathleen Lingo joining as guest for final crit.
DCTV’s Docu Work-In-Progress Lab is a triannual program that supports select filmmakers each with an independent documentary project in post-production that could highly benefit from dedicated feedback and crit-building germane to the editing process.
The Lab is scheduled and designed with an iterative structure in mind. Docu WIP filmmakers share and workshop each other’s initial rough cut during four screening/discussion sessions, providing crucial insight for each other under the guidance of a filmmaker. Outside of these sessions, participants edit two new iterations of their rough cut based on the discussions. Finally, participants present their most refined cut on the final session which is a showcase for closing feedback with a special guest.
This year’s facilitator is award-winning editor Carla Gutierrez. Her recent film, When Two Worlds Collide was the winner of the World Cinema Documentary Prize for Best Debut Feature at Sundance and demonstrates her talents in stringing out a complicated and multiplayer political issue. She edited the Oscar nominated film La Corona for HBO and the Emmy nominated documentary Reportero which broadcast on POV.
The guest for the final crit is filmmaker and producer Kathleen Lingo, best-known as the commissioning editor of Opinion video for The New York Times and the series producer and curator of The New York Times Op-Docs series. Op-Docs is an award-winning series featuring short, interactive, and virtual reality documentaries produced by accomplished and burgeoning filmmakers, ranging across journalistic and artistic achievements.
