Professor: Richard Kerr.
The “look, make, learn, teach” style is a concept in studio education that requires one to be self-motivated, independent, critically constructive, and curious in their about contemporary cinematic processes. The question of cinematic authorship will be stressed, articulating innovative and experimental approaches. Our objective of studio-based learning necessitates the integration of personal research with the group’s collective experience leading to open exchanges with fellow practitioners. The class will involve critiques relating to your presentations, ancillary screenings, and discussions. The primary focus and objective of the studio class is the consideration of process, methods, materials, and technology. The studio class investigates the evolving forms of cinema as impacted by digital technology and how it has affected the language of cinema, or perhaps, created its own grammar and aesthetics.
As for the Screen Event, it consists in the liberation of the work of art of any historical or academic genre. The Screen Event is not necessarily an experimental film, it can be a sketch, a visual concept, a loop projection, a visual component in an installation, and also an experimental single-channel movie.

The heart of the workshop will be about working in stereo, working on ‘both sides’ of the image. That every portrait is also a self portrait, for instance. That’s why there is a yoga component in the class: it’s very helpful to have an embodied expression of these two sides. That we will feel the two sides of our own bodies, and from those sensations, those newly awakened memories, we will work with the archives. To work with our whole body, to see with our whole body, to hear with our whole body. This is the hope. And to work separately, together. This workshop will look at the question of the portrait. How can I make a picture of a face? Of all the people that live in a face? Using a series of in-class exercises, assignments, screenings, critiques and movie makings, we will make an approach to the subject, to the question of subjectivity. We will entertain questions of power and distance (the first questions of ethics: how close? how far?). A special selection of archival shorts has been made especially for this workshop. How to make these faraway pictures feel close, close enough to find a subject, to find ourselves even?
May 28th – June 8th 2018
This workshop is designed to investigate various ways in which the notions of process are embodied in cinematic works. Through a series of lectures, screenings, discussions and hands-on exercises, the workshop will examine fundamental frameworks that shape our understanding of the interweaving relationship between process and form in cinema. Students will gain awareness of how process becomes instrumental in determining the aesthetics and structure of a cinematic work while considering related topics such as the roles and functions of parameters, techniques of intuition, and intentionality and chance. At the core of the course is an individual creative project that each student will work on. This course, above all, is about making and thinking about the act of making. Students will learn to develop their own processual approaches and integrate them into the shapes of their finished work, which should serve as the culminating synthesis of their artistic explorations. The workshop also offers hands-on opportunity to work in 16mm and film processing in the darkroom.Certificados:
