The workshop starts and ends at the Frame office, but we will be doing our filming practice at a Catalysti member, Jane Hughes’ exhibition THESE FRAGMENTS I HAVE SHORED AGAINST MY RUINS at tm•galleria.
About the Workshop:
In this workshop, we will go through concepts of videography and storytelling. Participants will learn how to film and develop an audiovisual piece in groups. We will raise questions about what is invisible, and focus on the process more than on the final result. The tutor will go through videography concepts of framing, movement, angles, and light, how to use them and what we want to tell with those. We will gather in groups, film, and edit together to create a video.
There is no minimum level or required previous knowledge for participants. Registration is required.
