The Colorado Documentary Project provides students with a rigorous and creative filmmaking education bridged by a real-world professional experience.
Students will make their own films while examining the history, codes, and conventions of the documentary form. Students will also participate in an externship at a relevant Front Range organization. These externships will inspire their final projects: short films about Colorado society, history, or culture. The student films will be made with in-progress feedback from Rocky Mountain PBS. The completed films will be considered for public television broadcast.
The Colorado Documentary Project is dedicated to gripping storytelling, original research, and community-building through the production and distribution of documentary films about our region. Students will engage in deep academic study while gaining understanding of professionalism in the world beyond the college.
