The Department of Media Studies, Faculty of Humanities at Notre Dame University – Louaize (NDU - Main Campus) is organizing a competition titled: “The film language: How to make static objects speak” to be held on Saturdays March 11 and March 18, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Division of Audio-Visual Arts at NDU.
The film language: How to make static objects speak is a two full day filming workshop during which students will learn the importance of each main element that constitutes the art of filmmaking and its role in delivering messages through the unsaid. Participants should have an interest in majoring in cinematography, film-making and Television techniques and aesthetics.
The aim of the workshop is to introduce to the young generation a new way of expressing through moving images and helps them make a smart use of their motionless surroundings. It is somehow the art of storytelling that reflects a certain situation or status-quo without the necessity of using the common communication tool: “words”.
It is divided into two Saturdays sessions, during the first camera and shooting hands-on training will be given in addition to some explanation about the elements of filmmaking and the ways of expressing through images. The students will have a whole week to shoot their ideas that will be assessed, edited and finalized during the second Saturday session.
A jury from the Department will review and evaluate the submissions. Certificates will be given to all attendees and trophies will be distributed to the first three winning students.
The Department of Media Studies cordially invites your students to participate in this unique opportunity. If you are interested, kindly provide us with the number of students attending/participating in the competition, and a contact person from the school with a mobile number.
