One half of our dual mission is documentary education. Carbon Trace Productions is dedicated to educating students in the diverse skills required for the art of documentary filmmaking. Our nonprofit film studio in Springfield, Missouri works primarily with students at Missouri State University, but we will work with any student anywhere with an important story to tell. Carbon Trace can provide significant guidance in developing, funding, producing, and distributing a documentary film. For high school students wishing to learn more about documentary filmmaking, Missouri State University offers degrees in digital filmmaking, media production, journalism, and other associated areas. The department of Media, Journalism & Film offers a documentary certificate program open to students and the public.
To take part in the documentary education provided through the Carbon Trace Team, we encourage you to apply for a filmmaking internship, submit a documentary idea, or apply to become a volunteer using the forms below.
