UNDERWATER VIDEO AND PHOTO STORYTELLING class Coming Soon Wherever Great Stories are Found I n 2009 I retired from the film industry to open UTD. Up until that time I had photographed and/or directed about 1000 TV commercials, dozens of music videos, a few theatrical feature films, and a hand full of TV movies. I also taught filmmak- ing for a few decades. Over the past few years, I’ve been making documentaries...a completely different yet fascinating genre after a lifetime of scripted and narrative projects. All that, combined with an overwhelming number of boring vacation videos blowing up YouTube and Facebook, led to this new UTD class. Instructors and students have been asking us for a photo course for years, and now we have it. Join us for a week of documentary filmmaking and photography as we travel the world seeking the great stories. Do you have a story that needs to be told? Collect a team, give us a call, and we’ll set up the workshop. The smallest stories are often the most fascinating. Details for the Tortola workshop in January can be found by clicking here.
