Oleksandr Techynskyi, Oleksiy Solodunov, аnd Dmytro Stoykov. Close Combat Documentary

Duration
120’

Oleksandr Techynskyi, Oleksiy Solodunov and Dmytro Stoikov are photojournalists having in sum over 30 years of work experience. They worked as staff press photographers for leading Ukrainian periodicals and contributed to numerous world-famous newspapers and magazines. However, having been using universal photo/video cameras, now they tend to choose the video mode. A year ago Oleksandr Techynskyi’s debut documentary Sirs and Seniors premiered at Docudays UA.

 

Oleksandr, Oleksiy and Dmytro were actively filming the events of Euromaidan. Over ten shorts films on this topic (3 to 6 minutes) were published on the website of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The striking film about bloody events of February 18th published on LiveLeaks on its first day had 100 000 views and provoked a burst of comments from all over the world. In the future, all video materials will be edited as a full-length documentary.

 

During the workshop, the guys will speak about their way from photojournalism to video reports to documentary filmmaking. While watching the short films about Euromaidan, you will see how photojournalistic experience influences video shooting and will have a chance to reflect on the features that differentiate the speakers’ work.
