How to tell a story close to home
During lockdown Clare has created Coronavirus Stories with CFF, an audio visual project that documents the thoughts, feelings and experiences of one street in Penryn – the street where she lives.
In this masterclass session, Clare will talk through the production from start to finish, exploring interview techniques, technical set up, editing, and the issues that come up when telling stories very close to home.
This masterclass is open to all level and takes place via ZOOM.
Clare Tavernor is a documentary filmmaker with a keen eye for socially conscious and often politically charged storytelling about the arts. Having worked for the BBC as a staff director for ten years she cut her teeth directing short films for the arts magazine programme The Culture Show (where she found herself holed up in Iceland with Julian Assange among many other strange experiences). Her long form documentaries have explored a wide range of subjects, but often focus on the experiences of women and other marginalised voices. In recent years she has completed two landmark series for BBC Four exploring the music of Africa and Latin America, a film about the feminist artists of the 1970s and an obervational documentary with pop star Charli XCX looking at what feminism means to female musicians today. Alongside Clare’s linear films, she has also broken new ground, designing and producing the BBCs first interactive documentary with the hip hop duo Run The Jewels, and directed the hit online series Let’s Settle This with Grime MC Big Narstie, both of which won innovation awards
