Join the collaborative team of award-winning photojournalist Erika Schultz and video journalist Corinne Chin for a deep dive workshop on documenting social issues through non-fiction photography and video storytelling. How can still photographs work together with video and sound to tell integrated narratives about social change? In each session, Schultz and Chin will walk through case studies examining their process, collaborative methods, tools for each project, and the important issues and challenges they’ve encountered. At the end of each session, they will review and critique participants who wish to share ongoing project work, pitches or new project ideas. Each student will leave the workshop with a well-developed pitch or project that utilizes at least two mediums (e.g. photo, video, audio, text) to tell a story about social change.
