All of the students were nervewrecked on the day of the premiere. They’ve worked tirelessly for six months, went to New York for special training and have been coached through the entire process. For the CampusDoc course they had to complete their first edit of the film and all finished the course with honours. But the work was not done, they contacted professional companies to help them with color correction, audio post processing and creating music scores. All of this resulted in eight wonderful documentaries.
