Filming reality


I look at the reality. I see her. I create my own. We are all different. We see differently. Otherwise we hear. We have a different understanding of things. And that's interesting. To see life from our own shooting angle. And show it. The goal of a filmmaker : not only to look at reality, but to see it. A creative journey awaits us, where we will acquire technical knowledge for a documentary film and for a fiction film (camera, sound, editing), to develop ideas, to exchange views, to get to know modern trends in cinema. From the script to the realization: You can make your film with the simplest means. You can give way to the essence of your story. You can get your own original look, your own style. -In the workshop we will analyze the visual-acoustic arts: fiction films, documentaries, reportage, the similarities and the differences between them. -What are their capabilities and what we will choose to tell our story. - The role of cinema in our modern life, how we can communicate with our fellow human beings in the best possible way with the help of cinematic means. - An acquaintance with the technical side of cinema (camera, shots, editing, sound, rhythm) and the appropriate choice, according to the story. - Our story: the script. Ways and examples. How we make a script in the documentary and in the fiction film. In the practical part of the workshop, the participants will be divided into groups (5-6 people) and, having a common theme, each group will create their own scenario.
