    Course Outline

    A web documentary isn't simply a documentary for the web. It is instead a form of multimedia storytelling where photography, text, audio, video, animation and infographics are combined together into a non linear production to create an immersive experience. 

    It is a useful tool for investigative journalists who want to tell their stories in greater depth than simply print or website copy and at a lower cost than a traditional documentary. 

    The workshop is part of the CIJ Investigative Film Week 2013. It starts from the basics of webdocs and covers the main topics of this genre:
