POETIC FILM MAKING
August 2-6, 5 days
Do you want to create art and poetry with moving images and sounds? A practical workshop where we explore the poetic potential of the film. Let a thousand flowers bloom!
The course puts art, poetry and the artistic process at the center. It is based on practical exercises that are shown and discussed in groups. The exercises provide a simple framework to be creative in, while there is freedom for your own ideas. Abstract, experimental, romantic or activist - it's your fascinations and inspirations that will be explored! You can join the course individually, but there is also the opportunity to register with someone you want to work with. Equipment for photos, audio and clips is available, while it is possible to use your own camera or mobile phone.
Dates: August 2-6 (5 days)
