Cinema is made by ideas, narratives, objects, machines characters, actions, dialogs, sounds and spaces which are structures in a time line. The focus of this workshop is to design a cinematic experience in space, exploring the representation in cinema and the medium itself.
We will exercise the design of film narratives and the creation of characters and actions and at the same time design objects that interact with these narratives through light, sound and the moving image in space. The final exercise will be a combined film installation and performance.
“The thing that matters is not what they show me but what they hide from me and, above all, what they do not suspect is in them.” Robert Bresson
