Behind The Scenes: How We Created A Documentary-Style Short Film In 1 Day
We love a challenge — like filming, cutting, and producing a documentary-style short film, all in a single day.
Yesterday, we joined Griffin Hammond on an incredibly fun and insightful project as part of his class, Shooting Documentary Short Films.
Griffin was headed on a shoot at a local Northern California-based business, AMAC Plastics, a leading manufacturer of modern lifestyle storage, organization, and packaging products, and we tagged along to see how it’s done.
He’s producing a promotional short film for the business to increase awareness of their new products and grow their footprint online, a very common need for both new and established businesses.
At the end of the class, we’re going to show the finished film he shot yesterday. We’ll also present an in-depth behind the scenes reel, showing how Griffin sets up his equipment in the field, how he conducts interviews, what type of b-roll you’ll need, and how to bring out your own unique voice through a short film project.
With the rapidly growing demand from small and medium sized businesses needing professional short videos put together, Griffin has seen an influx in new clients in his freelance filmmaking business. As a result, he’s had to streamline his process and figure out how to create excellent short films in record time.
Take an even more in-depth look into Griffin’s production process and how he shoots for his clients in his class.
From rigging a GoPro up to a forklift to capture that perfect b-roll sequence, to setting up professional interviews on-the-go, you’re going to learn how to make a documentary-style short film that captivates any audience.
