  15. Documentary vs “based on a true story”

  16. Conventions of documentary • Following a person with a hand-held camera / sound equipment • Interview • Re-enactment • Narrative voice-over • Stock footage • montage

  17. Following a person with a hand-held camera / sound equipment • Why is this necessary? • How is it different from non-documentary films? • What kind of mood does it create?

  18. Interview • When would this be used? • Why would you interview someone rather than follow and record him or her?

  19. Re-enactment • Why would a filmmaker re-enact an event? • What shows do you watch that use reenactments? • What is the filmmaker’s desire for the audience that causes him or her to reenact a key event?

  20. Narrative voice-over • What is it? • When is it used?

  21. montage • A series of shots are edited into one sequence to condense time / space / information. • Think about the filmmaker’s objective as we watch some: • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh6O_9DSjYs • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veO_bGXuR6U • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFrMLRQIT_k
