Programme XIII Workshops

Free registration: cero@alcine.org

 

INAUGURAL WORKSHOP:

“PROFESSIONAL RECORDING EQUIPMENT” with Welab.

Friday 10th. 10hr to 14hr. Free registration. Limited places

Theory and practice “starting from scratch” of the most important technical elements of an audio-visual production. We’ll be starting from the basics of digital shooting and recording with state-of-the-art film cameras. We’ll be getting familiar with their features and the most important aspects to learn to differentiate them and to be able to choose the most suitable ones for each circumstance. There will therefore, be an opportunity to get to look up close at the professional equipment of the main manufacturers of audio-visual equipment on the market and, together, we’ll be studying their pros and their contras, their functions and some recording tricks and tips.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get first-hand experience of some of the most used models in the film and television industry (for example: ARRI Alexa Mini, RED Epic, Sony FS7, Canon C300 and Panasonic Varicam, among others).

 

COURSE “A FILM HISTORY BY… VISUAL 404»

POST-NARRATIVE CINEMA: IMAGES, AESTHETICS AND ICONOCLASTIC AUDIO-VISUALS by Visual404

Monday 13th to Thursday 16th – 10hr-14hr. Free registration. Limited places.

 

After the success of Velasco Broca’s workshop last year, we are again providing a personal and inimitable journey through the History of Film. From the classics-basics to the latest audio-visual trends thanks to Visual404, a retina-fsmashing digital magazine and one of the leading creative collectives in detecting and interpreting new trends, which may or may not (it’s up for debate) be called the cinema of today.
These workshops will invite you to go on a playful and festive journey on the audio-visual margins. Cinema and its theory cannot continue to ignore new image consumption and creation habits: the aesthetics coming out of youtube, tumblr and instagram, 360º narratives, the fleeting nature of everything viral or the framing habit. The truth is we are asphyxiated by a sea of images, but in contrast to the apocalyptic viewpoint of most theorisers in relation to everything contemporary, we are having a great time in the pixelated vortex of this reality. The workshop has been devised as digital ethnography, a playlist of visual fragments commented on and accompanied by certain theoretical pointers and bibliographical recommendations so participants can go into greater depth.

 

Visual 404: experience not found is a digital project developed and nurtured by an audio-visual critical and creative collective of the same name. Since 2014, we have devoted ourselves to reinterpreting images and recreating them on the basis of and through all the possibilities furnished us by digital technology.

Subject-matter: History of cinema, History of the contemporary world, Sound communication, Narrative, Audio-visual language, Direction, Production…

 

TALKS AND MEETINGS WITH PROFESSIONALS

 

“PRODUCING CINEMA IN EUROPE” with Giovani Pompili.

Monday 7th. 17:00hr-18:30hr. Free registration. Limited places.

 

Since 2002 Giovanni has worked on the creation and production of more than thirty documentaries and short films in Italy and the UK. He has experience directing cinema (Alpi Ilaria Award 2011), which helped him understand and relate production work to artistic needs.

At the end of 2011, he took charge of Kino Produzioni and decided to change the direction of the company, from TV production to the development and production of films with stories and up and coming directors. He has participated at festivals such as Cannes and Locarno. Five years ago, along with 50 other film professionals, he founded a cinema bistrot in Rome, El Kino. He has gone on to experiment further in the field of film distribution and programming.

“NEW NARRATIVES AND FORMATS” with Manuel Bartual.

Tuesday 14th. 17:00hr-18:30hr. Free registration. Limited places.

 

“I came on holiday a few days ago, to a hotel close to the beach. Everything was fine until strange things started to happen.”

 

Manuel Bartual, sketch artist, designer, editor, filmmaker, but above all the person behind ‘Todo está bien’ (Everything’s alright), a simple holiday story transformed into a science-fiction thriller that set Twitter alight at the end of last summer. Using his own work and the work of others, and the odd bun or two, we will be taking a look at new forms of narration provided by digital media, something Bartual has experimented with before in work such as Ventanitas (2013) or his first feature film Todos tus secretos (2014), in the programme of ALCINE45 and shot entirely with webcams.

 

Subject-matter: AV narratives, New digital formats, Production and direction, Video games, Socio-economy of the II.CC …

At the same time, she works in radio and TV (Dani&Flo, Cuatro) and as a producer and scriptwriter for Play Station Spain and EA Sports. She also made a auto-tune for Chiquito de la Calzada because, inexplicably, nobody else had done it already.
