With Nathan Micay, Cole Kush and Tom Goulet

This session of DOCUMENTARY FUNDAMENTALS is about harnessing the power of music and graphic design in your next documentary. How can title design and graphics be effectively utilized in documentary? What about my approach to music or working with a composer? This session will dig in to graphics, music that come together during post production.

DOCUMENTARY FUNDAMENTALS: A professional development series designed to give the emerging or intermediate documentary filmmaker an inside look at the filmmaking process from pre-production planning to post-production and distribution. Over the past few years, UnionDocs has developed this ongoing program for documentarians that desire a better foundation for navigating the modern landscape of independent filmmaking. This six-part program takes place over the course of one weekend at UnionDocs. Buy a SERIES PASS ($175) or choose to attend individual sessions ($35/each).


Tom Goulet is a freelance director / motion graphics artist living in Los Angeles working mostly on projects in the music, commercial, and film industries. Tom graduated Ithaca College in 2016 and worked for 4 years at Spikeball Inc. as their videographer/graphic designer/social media guy. Now he works full time on freelance projects directing videos, doing VFX, motion graphics, graphic design, title design, and other stuff. He does almost everything in After Effects. He loves eating cereal but just plain cereal, not sugary kinds. His two favorite cereals are Special K (Original), and Joe’s O’s, but Joe’s O’s changed their formula slightly when they moved factories in 2020 and it’s a little worse than it used to be.

Cole Kush is a director and animator from Canada whose works tend towards the absurd, often finding the bizarre in the mundane. He has directed projects for Adult Swim, HBO, SNL, A$AP Rocky, Nike, Vice and a variety of artists to create innovative visual work. Cole founded Eternal Family, an artist-run streaming service and co-founded the creative studio Grin Machine.

Toronto born, Berlin based artist Nathan Micay has been on quite the run these past few years. His debut EP on esteemed label AD93 (formerly Whities) in 2018 ‘First Casualtiy’ became one of the biggest hits of the dance music circuit, gaining acclaim on best of year lists from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, Dj Mag. He followed this up in 2019 with his debut album ‘Blue Spring’ on Warp Records affiliate label LuckyMe. The album became a landmark release that effortlessly brought together the sounds of trance, electronica and techno, placing them under the roof of the avant-garde. The release received wide acclaim, prominently featured on many end of year lists, this time in dance music and beyond. As a DJ, he has continued to make his mark on the international club circuit, establishing himself as sa regular at key venues such as Berghian Berlin, fabric London, Contact Tokyo and Goodroom NYC. However, in 2020 Nathan truly arrived, offering two bodies of work that nobody saw coming. His surprise second album on LuckyMe ‘The World I’m Going to Hell For’ was released in May 2020. It was created entirely with his string instruments and limited electonics. Pitchfork called it “Uniquely powerful” and it offered fans and listeners alike a new window into Nathan’s growing artistic vision. The album expanded on his cinematic sound and perfectly positioned for the natural move into scoring. He spent the first six months of 2020 working on his biggest project yet: a full symphonic hybrid score for the new HBO series Industry. The three hours of score in the series received acclaim from The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Independent among other leading publications. He has followed this up with scores for HBO’s Reality, HBO’s TimeBomb: Y2K and other scoring projects for studios such as Netflix and Paramount.
