Behind The Scenes

There is minimal research into the participant's experience in the documentary filmmaking process. Kym Melzer's PhD research is exploring the participant's experience in the documentary process. She asked the participants to answer three questions

  • 1. What was your motivation for participating in The Ripple Effect of PTSD?
  • 2. What are your expectations for your film?
  • 3. Is there something else you'd like to add?

The filmmaker, Kym Melzer, asked the participants to shoot this video handheld with a phone camera, no lighting and no microphones attached (some filmed themselves, others were filmed by the filmmaker). Experimenting with technique and style has allowed the filmmaker to achieve the desired look that is loose and un-cinematic.

Participants videos can be viewed below.
