In this GLE project students from DePaul's School of Cinematic Arts worked work with students from the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs to create short non-fiction films. Production teams of 6 students (3 from each school) collaborated to create chapters within one or two films that complimented each other thematically. Students worked collaboratively with their international counterparts to ideate together, create a production plan for each unit, share and integrate footage from each country to create a film. The students took on crew roles of Director/Editor, Cinematographer, and/or Sound Recordist to work cohesively as a unit.
"Making a documentary is not easy. Making a documentary in 7 weeks with filmmakers in three different countries who you have never met, about a topic that you all had to agree on, while learning about a new culture, and make it emotional is amazing." ~ Anuradha Rana
