The Way We Learn

Featuring interviews from five children of separated families, this documentary takes a look at how divorce can effect the way people view their world and their future. The Way We Learn was a project for DMDN 211: Cinematics at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand.


This was a solo project for a class. I developed the concept, scouted locations, found appropriate interviewees, ran and filmed interviews, wrote topics and questions, shot B-Roll, edited in Final Cut Pro, and did image correction in After Effects. All original music by Joe Kennerly. Special thanks to Ryan Oliveria and Alex Millard for overseas support.
