REFRAME YOUR HISTORY – DOCUMENTARY FILM MAKING
July 3 - 7
Welcome to a week in workshop format, where together we explore filmmaking as a storytelling practice!
History is not neutral - and neither is your telling of it. In this course you get to revisit a story about society and make an alternative personal story that breaks with the usual narrative. We work with the film camera as a tool and a documentary, personally engaged approach to storytelling. It will be fun, challenging and completely without promises about the result. Your project can be the start of a longer exploration or end when the week does. No matter what, you will leave here with new tools to work documentary together with new acquaintances.
Arrangement: The course combines lecture, individual work in a group and response discussions. You get inspiration from some of the newest movies. In group work, you work with other filmmakers who, just like you, want to challenge the way we understand our world.
Bring: Bring your own camera, equipment and computer with film editing software if you have one. There are a few loan cameras and computers with Final Cut for those who do not have their own.
Previous knowledge: You must have basic experience in filming with a film camera and editing in Final Cut Pro (or your own program). The course assumes that you can handle the technical parts of filmmaking independently. You should also have ideas for one or a couple of topics that you would like to explore.
