Worth Watching #150: CLARESSA by Zackary Canepari

Powerful film from Zackary Canepari (and a talented support team) from the Flint is a Place series. Claressa “T-Rex” Shields became the first woman ever to win the gold medal in Olympic boxing in 2012. Surprising to see what happened next. -Brian Storm

Apart from the Reporting and Post-production tracks, which teach very specific theory and skills used by MediaStorm, the Making Of modules offer a behind-the-scenes look at this methodology being put into practice, by dissecting the many decisions in the making of four different films.
