Conventions of crime documentaries

  2. 2. Background on Documentaries <ul><li>Documentary films constitute a broad category of nonfictional motion pictures intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record. </li></ul><ul><li>A &quot;documentary film&quot; was originally a movie shot on film stock—the only medium available—but now includes video and digital productions that can be either direct-to-video or made for a television program. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Documentary&quot; has been described as a &quot;filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception&quot; that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Documentary films differ from the typical Hollywood movie because of one clear reason. While movies tend to be fictional stories acted out by known celebrities or striving stars, documentaries are non-fictional stories that are perhaps narrated by a single individual. The goal of a documentary is not to develop a fictional story, but essentially to tell a realistic and true story by presenting facts and interviews. </li></ul>
