Training workshop: “Audiovisual creation with easy-to-use devices”

Monday, March 25th, in the Museo do Pobo Galego. from 17:30 to 20:30.

Taught by filmmakers in charge of MICEscola, Coral Piñeiro and Bruno Arias.

MICEscola is a MICE’s educational project focused on bringing ethnographic cinema to schools. It is an experience that brings together students, teachers and professionals from the audiovisual sector. Its purpose is to provide young people with technical and narrative tools so that they can tell their point of view about the world through short films created with easy-to- access and easy-to-use devices.

In this second edition, the filmmakers Coral Piñeiro and Bruno Arias organised three sessions for each centre, where they managed to show the students the different aspects of the creative process: the choice of a topic, the ideation of a story, the writing of a script, the elaboration of a directing proposal, the filming, the editing and the many doubts, difficulties and possibilities each and every one of these processes hide.

In the workshop “Audiovisual creation with easy-to-use devices,“ Coral and Bruno will make use of the lessons learned during the implementation of MICEscola´s project and will share them with people interested in using audiovisual in schools for different purposesartistic, expressive, social communication purposes and, of course, also as part of the ethnographic methodology. The keys to guide students in their search for a speech, intentions and a message will be given. At the same time, they will have help to communicate their findings through images and sound. The script process, the search of a proper production according to the objectives of the idea and to the technical limitations, or the editing process will be addressed.
