Documentaries

Here are links to outstanding film productions you can view online.

It’s important to know what good cinematography and storytelling looks and sounds like. I’ll add more links as I find them. If you have a suggestion for a link to add, email me and let me know! πŸ™‚

My new favorite right now? Made by 4th grader Zachary Maxwell! Check THIS out!

Check out the rest of Zachary Maxwell’s films on his Vimeo Channel.

Check out theΒ Focus Forward: Short Films/Big Ideas (3 minutes each) on a variety of topics. They tell a story of science and innovation and hope for the future.

Check out this student created film for the CSPAN Film Contest below. If you can write a film like this, you will win festivals and competitions!
