Thirteen students in Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Bachelor of Arts program can now add “Documentary Filmmaker” to their resumes.
The students screened their films in the Social Justice Documentary Film Festival on campus on Thursday, March 12, as part of Stan Roden’s Documentary Filmmaking class.
Roden introduced the morning by telling the audience that the films being shown were the first films produced by most of the students. Praising how much they had accomplished in the 10 weeks of the class, Roden said the students all climbed several hills dealing with lighting, composition, and music, but also likened the storytelling aspect as more of a mountain the students all climbed successfully.
