Learn Documentary Filmmaking For Free From Documentary Film Class

This year, I had the privilege to attend Kevin Knoblock’s Documentary Film Class. Check out our article here:
Typically, you have to be in Los Angeles to have access to great classes like this taught by REAL directors, not “gurus”. However, now Knoblock is bringing this class to everyone in a new webinar coming up next Saturday, December 13.

A couple of great things about this particular class. First, it’s half off. So you can get this class that normally goes for $80 no only $39.95. Second, HDLSR Shooter is giving away 3 passes to our followers on twitter.

To qualify, just make sure you’re following @HDSLRShooter on twitter and tweet directly to @HDSLRShooter saying you want to attend and using the following hashtag:


That’s all there is to it. HDSLR Shooter will choose 3 people on or before December 11, and winners will be announced on twitter. Whether you win or not, if you’re thinking about producing a documentary film or are curious about documentary film production, I highly recommend you strongly consider taking this class. You’d be hard pressed to find someone more qualified to teach about documentary film production than director Kevin Knoblock.

If you’re not familiar with him, Kevin Knoblock has written, produced and directed hundreds of hours of syndicated television, written and produced multiple hours of one-hour cable documentaries, and written, produced and directed feature length film documentaries, including BORDER WAR (Winner, Best Documentary 2006, American Film Renaissance) and BROKEN PROMISES: THE UNITED NATIONS AT 60 (2005 WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival Special Jury Remi Prize winner). In 2009 and 2010, Knoblock wrote, produced and directed the feature documentary NINE DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD about Pope John Paul II’s historic trip to Poland, the beginning of the Solidarity movement and the collapse of Soviet Communism.
