Fall 2016 @Mizzou: Exploring Other Lifestyles from Behind the Lens

Marisa Anz, Documentary Journalism

Columbia, MO. (Dec. 9, 2016) — Marisa Anz, a senior studying documentary journalism, meets with Associate Professor Stacey Woelfel to discuss her senior capstone project.

Anz has been working on this project since pitching the concept last February. Her documentary focuses on the lives of women in the sex industry, specifically local strip clubs, portraying their stories both in and outside of the club. Anz values the real-world experience she’s gotten working on her capstone, which has taught her the importance of flexibility within the documentary journalism field. “Life kind of revolves around my subject,” Anz says. “If she calls me with a new development, I drop everything and go.” Photo by Meghan Gordon.
