Summary of the talk:

The main purpose of the talk was to teach students basics of documentary making. The use of equipment and the angles to be taken while filming was explained. The critical analysis of already made documentaries given by students was also done. Both good points and bad points were highlighted. A tutorial on choice of subject and the information provided through it was also given.

Role of the activity in student development:

The Zoology students study the course of “Ornithology and Herpetology” for which the final project of documentary making is assigned. The choice of subject and animal depends upon the student and its resources. This workshop helped students in learning how to make a good documentary with a low budget and good resolution and narration.
