Tell your story with MDOCS

Tell a story with MDOCSJoin the students who staff Skidmore’s DOCLab (a hub for audiovisual production both in and out of classes, serving all majors and all media) to explore the art and craft of documentary storytelling—sonic, visual, and performed.


We’ll listen together to our favorite podcasts, swap podcast recommendations, try out the art of live storytelling (a la NPR’s The Moth) in a low-stakes open-mic setting, and split into teams for a 24-hour filmmaking race.
