Program Experimentation and execution of intensive and continued audiovisual exercises aiming at the development of a personal cinematographic language. 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 specialized skills to a widening of the students’ compositional horizon.

Notes Beyond the classes dedicated to orient the development of each student’s project, Video Lab II also includes the following workshops: Workshop Super 8; Workshop Documentary Film; Workshop Idea and Writing; Workshop Workshop Film Directing and Montage.
