MFA Candidate Teaches Documentary Skills to Nicaraguan Teenagers

nicaJon2MFA candidate Jon Bougher recently finished teaching Nicaraguan children the fundamentals of documentary film as part of his outreach efforts in the country.

Utilizing Flip video cameras, Bougher conducted a 10-day workshop for six teenagers of La Chureca, a community formed near the Managua City trash dump. The workshop taught aspects of documentary theory, production and post production, and the students each created three short videos highlighting the various programs at NicaHOPE, a local outreach of Fabretto Children’s Foundation.
