The Creative Documentary Course at SACAC is like taking a long journey where you are made to look within yourself. To find a perspective with which you can look at the world outside.
The fact that the course has a lot of guest lecturers allows you to call for a cinematographer when you feel like that is what you need, or a sound designer when you need to hone that skill.
The class strength of the course is low which allows the mentors to individually mentor each student and that is what I think is very special about the course. CDC is about finding your own voice and I think it fulfils that purpose.
