Ken Burns


Ken Burns 1


I was lucky enough to be invited to a special Q&A event with legendary documentary filmmaker Ken Burns at Kent State this week. Burns spoke about his process, DSC_0086starting with his, “looking for ideas big enough to be afraid of again.” He then went on to discuss his unique approach to development, in which his research, scripting, and even music are an ongoing part of putting together a film until the final cut is complete. He was nothing short brilliant, and not a single member of the audience left uninspired.
