Filming techniques. Make a video-presentation of your projects
Video has gained importance in social networks and in the spreading of contents through new channels and it is becoming even more extensible to the rest of disciplines related to image. The idea of this capsule is to film a video-presentation of different project based on a storyboard. This capsule allows the students to practice a new language with multiple perspectives and possibilities to advertise themselves, show and visualize their creations, both in pitching sessions of projects and social networks. The workshop structure makes it possible for the student to be accompanied during the step-by-step filming and montage. This capsule stands out for being a teamwork experience that multiplies the teaching and provides essential basis for presentations and future works.
