An experimental attitude is encouraged in order to develop the student’s sensibility to the moving image, in its more practical and technical aspects. The main objective of this level is the creation of a collective and individual portfolio that is both consistent and diversified, reflecting the various skills acquired and revealing an artistic dimension in the work.

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, special emphasis will be given to practical exercises developed out of the classroom and subsequently discussed in group sessions. These 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 part 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 the 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.

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 should give way to a schematic representation, in the form of sequential images, of the plot and rhythm of a film project.

Priority will be given to the exploration of the documentary as a specific but integrating strategy in a wider cinematographic practice. Resorting to a series of films, texts and practical exercises, suggested and discussed in class, we will map some of the fundamental problems raised by the relation between cinema and reality, the key point of documentary practice. This map will be partly oriented by the problems that participants encounter while building their final work: a small film, with a free theme and developed individually.

Optical devices and pre-cinematographic contraptions will be considered in lab context and from an archaeological point of view. Participants will themselves produce image analog apparatuses and reflect on their nature and effects. Through artistic practice and experimentation, the workshop will promote the discussion of some of the movement image’s specificities, namely the question of the image’s status as an object in space.

We will aproach filmmakers, films, artistic currents or movements which, as an answer to their contemporary reality or as a reaction to technological innovation, questioned cinematographic language, deviated from the canon or reinvented the practice and the poetics of the moving image.
Anchoring films, gestures and concepts on cinema history, this academic year will privilege works that allow us to map a history of Colonial Cinema and Cinemas of Africa, reflecting on the Post-Colonial paradigm in Contemporary Cinema.

This workshop is oriented towards the production of a small film, using archive images and sounds: public and institutional, personal and from the family circle, graphic, photographic or in movement. By appropriating these images and sounds, extracting them from their original contexts, we will re-edit and re-compose them into a new filmic object.

Through practical exercises, we will explore specific attributes of the images related to the mechanisms/maters that make them appear. The starting point is always the still, photographic image, and the main method is the appropriation that is made (with special emphasis) in videographic and drawing media. We aim to make participants aware of the distances that the appropriation process introduces within the variety of images at stake and their typology.
