What would be the basis of a film? How can we first understand editing in a simple way? Groups learn to make a short story and create a printed or digital version of a photo-story with developing layers through words, labels and call-outs.PHOTOCOMIC WORKS
MATERIALS COME TO LIFE
An introduction to animation
Using different materials, 3D objects, plasticine, papers and much more, we are going to experiment with the technique called stop frame animation. Participants will create their own original short animations and we will see the things around us coming to life! A workshop focusing on the multiple possibilities that materials offer.ANIMATION WORKS
THE FIVE POINTS OF VIEW
Image and argumentation
How does a picture create meaning? How could we associate a picture with advertising while another picture could lead our minds to a tale? How is symbolism created? Can we explain all these to children? Small groups of children take photos directed in 5 different ways. They get used to the connotation of pictures by using codes, symbols and stereotypes of TV and cinema.
DOCUMENTARY & SHORT MOVIE
Documentary and short movie production can be two of the most exciting and rewarding forms of filmmaking. Karpos offers workshops with professional documentary and film makers who enrich their facilitation with real-world experience.MOVIE WORKS
How is a real TV reportage? How do the camera and the microphone work? Students are guided through the processes that requires a professional research and learn how we write and ask questions like real reporters!
ONE BOOK, THREE FILM DIRECTORS
Literature and cinematography
Acquaintance with the language of cinema as well as the basic tools of cinematic storytelling. What is the cinematic narration of a story? Is it the story itself or, perhaps, the actual way we are telling it? How can three different filmmakers recount the same story differently? In this workshop we will watch three different cinematic versions of the same scene from a famous book and will try to understand the different narrative approaches developed. Then, we will try to film, in a simple setup, the same scene in three different ways.
YOUNG SOUND DESIGNERS
The pupils are introduced to the concept of sound and how it is used in films with the use of special microphones for children. They come to realize the impact of intensity, silence and depth of the sound and exercise recording each other after they have planned and rehearsed their own hand made soundtrack.
OUR CLASSROOM'S MOVIE
Film and reality
Children create a short documentary movie which present their life in the school. Thus, they create as a team, always with the help of our filmmakers, a "portrait" - album of their class.
MY FAVOURITE CORNER
Image and narratives
Children, after learning tips and tricks about capturing photos and what a viewpoint is all about, select their favorite corner in the classroom / school and then they decide how to pose for their portrait. The photograph is printed and turns out into a new project which involves drawing under a new concept of a frame in a frame, with their own comic captions and painting interventions.
