A Masterclass with Charlie Phillips - Scottish Documentary Institute

A Masterclass with Charlie Phillips

We are delighted to welcome Charlie Phillips, Head of Documentaries at The Guardian for a masterclass on Friday 22nd of May 2015, 11am at the Edinburgh College of Art.

In recent years websites and news outlets, such as VICE or Aljazeera have began putting a big focus on the production of online documentaries. Whether it be hosted on their own video platform, or hosted through Youtube channels, there’s no ignoring this massive surge in online content and its popularity.

Charlie will be discussing this developing new landscape of online documentaries, and what sort of content The Guardian and some other online brands are looking for. As a filmmaker, how do you get involved with The Guardian? What to pitch, what not to pitch…

Charlie will have plenty of time for your questions!

Why not take a look at some existing documentaries produced through The Guardian in preparation?

Come and get inspired! Anyone welcome!
