Documentary Education

Documentary education is half our nonprofit mission at Carbon Trace Productions. We are dedicated to educating students in the diverse skills required of documentary filmmaking. Our nonprofit film studio in Springfield, Missouri works primarily with students at Missouri State University, but 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.
