I admit I didn’t know what I was getting into last May when I started working on a historical documentary of Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville. It started as a view from the cupola — the small dome atop the school — then it became a look at the architecture. Finally, it was decided that it should cover the full scope of the history of the Catholic all-girls school.
From there, several interviews were conducted, footage was shot, the school’s archivist was consulted, photos were repurposed and editing commenced. Read on below for some of the specifics of how the documentary was produced.
