• Course 6: Video/Film (expression in motion picture)

Course leader: Pepi Peter Sekulich 
Course assistant: Matija Jakin
5 - 17 July 2016
Maximum number of participants: 10

This is an introductory unit designed as a carousel of production techniques, inducting students into the technical aspects of digital video, sound recording, lighting for video, along with digitising and basic editing on Final Cut Pro or Premiere – (Adobe Creative Suite CSI) software, and DVD authoring. The class will also consider storyboarding, listing your shots and production planning. Weekly sessions will be divided into lectures and screenings, student-led seminars, tutorial sessions and intensive practical workshops.

Students will work in groups and be required to conceive, plan and complete a video project of 3-5 minutes. This might be a diary film or slice of life documentary, a short narrative, a fictional sequence or scene from a larger project idea, or merely an experiment with the media they have been introduced to.
