The musical documentary spans genres and decades, from pristine reproductions of famed concerts to in-depth looks “behind the music,” following artists as they create in real time, to the musical biopic and the virtuosic performances the medium has inspired. We will explore the inner-workings of the music documentary, analyzing concert performances, behind-the-scenes footage of your favorite artists creating their greatest hits, and more!

From such classics as Stop Making Sense to Summer of Soul to This is Spinal Tap, this course welcomes learners 18+ to explore this varied genre and ask the question: what makes for a great musical performance on film?
