Walden Apprenticeship Program 2015-2016

Myles Jewell from the VFC worked with Walden Project first-year student, Grace Smart, during five one-on-one sessions to support her in developing a documentary about the Walden Project. First, they discussed the history of ethnographic and documentary film and the ethics of representation through the lens of ethnography. Grace then developed a project outline and shot list for her days of filming. Myles was also able to watch some of her initial edits of the piece. The collaboration culminated in Myles going to a site visit with Grace where he supported her in shooting a “day in the life” at Walden.  Here is a behind-the-scenes look at that visit.
