The Archive Valley Masterclass
At Archive Valley, we see a lot of Film and TV professionals struggling with archival research. Yet, there is a growing appetite for archival-based stories, and a growing reliance on existing footage for unscripted and nonfiction productions.
That's why we came up with a concrete solution : an online course that is quite unique in the Film and TV industry. Within a year, we've launched 4 successful editions, adding new content and resources each time.
Engaging and practical, the Archive Valley Masterclass has been built as a step-by-step guide. It is specially tailored to empower documentary professionals with archival knowledge and skills, and help them deal efficiently with the many aspects of archival research, from pre-production through to Master deliveries.
Over the course of this masterclass, not only will you learn about the entire process, including best practices from archive producers credited on high-calibers docs, but you will also come away with the confidence and methodology needed to manage and oversee the archival research process of your next docs.
Amongst our past attendees, we've been happy to welcome directors, producers, line producers, production coordinators, assistant producers, post-production supervisors, editors, heads of development, as well as aspiring archive researchers.
The course suits all kinds of nonfiction projects and is relevant for freelancers willing to level their skills up and get ready for their upcoming documentary or docuseries.
