INTENSIVE ONE-DAY WORKSHOP ON FILM-MAKING FOR
Filmmaking for theatre is a middle ground, a space of intersection, a world suspended between different languages, aims, and rules, between art and documentation, technological and artistic work. That’s the “land” we will investigate in a one-day practical workshop. Participants will have the chance to work on a small task as filmmakers, from the beginning to the end of the process.
The aim is to have an overview and to discover the basic rules of filming theatre/live performance.
Topics to be covered:
Shooting movement: The actor and the camera in a theatrical performance. Relationship with examples:
Editing: how to cut and why. To follow and break the rules.
Live performance shooting: What is alive? Discussion with participants.
The workshop would end with a discussion with the participants. The workshop is for students, artists and filmmakers interested in the techniques of filming within the context of live performances.
Participants are requested to get their own camera and laptop. Editing Software to be used is Premiere Pro CC 2017/2018.

That’s the “land” we will investigate in this 3-day workshop on practical work and reflection.

Each day is dedicated to a specific topic, with examples and presentation of the work, practical exercises, conclusions, and discussion with participants.
Shooting. Training. The camera as an “actor” and camera as a “spectator”. Visual anthropology and theatre.
Editing. Motivated cutting. Types of cutting. A “montage of attractions”. Cutting on action. Cut and “sats”.
Live. Catching the flow. What is alive?
The workshop includes a brief introductory phase using examples from films of performances by Odin Teatret founded by the stalwart theatre director Eugenio Barba and others; filming examples and training with the camera; short experiments of editing and montage using archival material and/or documentation produced during the workshop.
