Programmes

Note: In light of the covid pandemic and the unpredictability of its evolution, the programs for 2021/22 may undergo format adaptations (to on-line or on-premise learning, or a mixture of both), Ar.Co’s priority being the on-premise format whenever possible and adequate. The schedules here announced therefore mention the format in which, except when impossible, the subject in question will be taught. Ar.Co will rigorously follow and implement all DGS guidelines, including the use of masks, distancing and hygiene.

An experimental attitude is encouraged in order to develop the student’s sensibility to the movement image, in its more practical and technical aspects.

Program Level 2 of the standard three-year program. An increasingly more experimental attitude is encouraged, with a view to achieving progress in the authorial dimension of each student’s work. The year will be divided in 3 parts. In the first of these periods, special emphasis will be given to practical exercises developed out of the classroom and subsequently discussed in group sessions. Exercises aim at reflecting an adequate relation between point of view, cinematographic vocabulary and finalized object, thus preparing the students for the development of a personal project. The second period will be dedicated to the writing and discussion of the annual personal project and to its pre-production. Finally, the third part of the year will include the actual shooting, the discussion of the material thus obtained and the following of montage until concluded. The course will benefit from the participation of guests who will contribute with their experience and skills to a widening of the students’ compositional horizon.

Development of a substantial personal project that implies consistent objectives and means of production. The department will create the conditions for a post-curricular internship in institutions of the cultural sector and/or of cinematographic production, so as to encourage a professional experience of the students concluding this training cycle.

The workshop aims at promoting an effective collaboration between students whose sensibility is closer to the cinema and others whose sensibility is closer to the discipline of illustration. The confrontation between both languages aims at producing a schematic representation, in the form of sequential images, of the plot and rhythm of a film project.

The landscape and territory surrounding the school will become the center of two types of exercises or exploratory journeys. One will take place in class sessions: we will see and discuss a series of films which allow us to explore, not only some images and questions regarding the landscape of Beato and Marvila, but also the ways in which cinema relates to an existing space. The other will be developed outside of class: a series of exercises will promote the exploration and mapping of a territory – physical, emotional or other - in the school surroundings.
