InterpreterNguyen Minh Ha – International Cooperation Department VTV

WORKSHOP in Ho Chi Minh City 4-10 May

It is important to know the difference between making a documentary and creating a documentary film.

The usual – so called – the real documentary film is a short version of reality. The reality that we face it in our daily life. We observe, discuss, argue about it. This kind of documentary is like a mirror of our worlds. There are just the evidence and long version of  some newsreels or reports.

BUT

But the creative documentary  is an art and represents the reality. The film is the identity of the maker. It is like his/her fingerprint, signature, inner feeling and existence. The maker uses music, sound effects, visual effects, graphics, animations and many other creative kinds of stuff.

The director/producer engages the audiences and captures their attention with the strategic ABCD rule – Astonishment, Believable, Captivating, Delightful (This is ABRONTAN’S RULE).
