A documentary film is a movie that attempts, in some way, to document reality. Even though the scenes are carefully chosen and arranged, they are not scripted, and the people in a documentary film are not actors. Sometimes, a documentary film may rely on voice-over narration to describe what is happening in the footage; in other films, the footage will speak for itself. Often, a documentary film will include interviews with the people in the film.
My initial idea when hearing about my A2 piece of coursework immediately brought me to the idea of talking on the topic ”Events”! It’s interesting, it’s hardly been done and everyone is familiar with the many different types.
I started to consider what I could include in such a documentary. I had to consider how and what I would be informing the audience of.
Having your own documentary to do will have you constantly thinking where and whenever you are!
You’ll end up asking yourself questions that you may want to find the answer to yourself and display in your own creative way, or to let the audience watch your documentary and allow their minds to wonder.
