Learning outcomes

At the end of the workshop, students acquire the fundamentals of some specific aspects of multimedia languages through a programme of guided exercises.

Course contents

The workshop will be an intensive training course in the language of cinema, in which various experiences will be combined, including: production, screenplay, direction, acting, editing and distribution. These phases will be aimed at the realisation of three short films in which all the attending students will be involved. They will be divided into different departments according to their aptitudes and the creative stimuli received during the first theoretical lessons. The workshop will be structured in four parts.

First theoretical part in which basic notions will be given on how to produce a short film through the search for funds through calls for proposals, film commissions, etc.. Short films and backstages will be shown in order to give a more complete vision of the cinematographic medium.

Second part of development and preparation in which students will have to write a story and then choose some of the best ideas and proceed to write the script. Then they will choose locations for filming and assign roles within the production organisation and other departments.

The third part will be the actual making of the short film.

The fourth part will be devoted to post-production, editing and the choice or composition of the music. Once the short film has been made, there will be a meeting to watch it together and there will be a discussion on its distribution route.
