This past June, Skidmore students, professors and professional documentarians came together for MDOCS' inaugural Storyteller's Institute. The residents lived, worked and ate in close proximity, and in so doing forged valuable, productive relationships with one another. And, maybe predictably, we at MDOCS’ did some documenting of the month's unfolding.
Featured on the Tumblr are excerpts from interviews conducted between the fellows that broadly show who they were and sort of experiences shaped theme. Some student projects, some still in progress, are showcased as well. For a sense of the activities that filled our non-production hours, see the Storytellers’ Institute in Pictures.
