Short Doc 2016 Stories

A woman nearly overwhelmed by circumstance is saved by her horse, a tattoo artist leads a football team onto the field for their first game, a mother finds a life worth living raising her disabled son, artists discuss the passion of their pursuits and a swimmer is undaunted by the disadvantage of being deaf on the starting blocks.

Just some of the 16 stories our students told in an intense three-day workshop at Penn State – spending hours interviewing and documenting the lives of their subjects and then many many more hours, late into the night, editing their work with the guidance of six alumni, professionals in the field of video storytelling.
