Micro Documentaries

A still image from a micro documentary, a city landscape.


Matt and Kevin from Human Being Productions are providing production staffing services in the form of an interview. They are standing in front of cameras and lights, with a subject being interviewed in front of them.

Short Form Documentaries, or Micro Documentaries are honest storytelling for a modern audience. If you’ve got a story to tell, a short documentary can be the fastest, easiest way to get it into video.

Micro Documentary packages range from a single filming date to much longer engagements, and we’ll schedule based on your needs. We get to know you, what matters to you, and what you need to say.

You’ll work with us to develop interview plans and determine who should be speaking on camera. We'll film on-location footage of your organization or project, an experienced director will conduct interviews in a way that helps you or your subject get to the heart of the message, and our editors will distill your footage into a clear, confident documentary piece.

The Listening Lab is a music education program from Baltimore Chamber Orchestra that teaches students concentration, awareness, and intentional listening-skills techniques through music. During a one-week residency, students participate in daily classroom sessions where they learn listening strategies with music of many genres, and conclude the week with a BCO concert in the students’ own school. We created a documentary-style explainer video featuring Assistant Conductor Rebecca Smithorn over the course of her residencies at two Baltimore schools, and learned how to open our hearts and our selves to music.

The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) commissioned Baltimore-based artist team and MICA alumna Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn to install a multi-media mural on the exterior wall of the school’s new Dolphin Design Center. The building’s façade features an art screen that can be seen by everyone traveling on Howard Street, and Jessie and Katey were the first artists to utilize the space. Over the course of several months we followed the progress of the mural and documented their journey to create a promotional video that the school could use to celebrate the new outdoor space.
