Join DocFilmSA for the fourth session in our docSHARE webinar programme:
Documentary Structure: Finding a Roadmap + Q&A
Guest Speaker: Tiny Mungwe
Session content & focus: This session considers the questions you should be asking in order to determine your filmmaking approach, start to create a potential narrative structure, treatment and how to effectively build a relationship with your characters.
