Master Class at Berlin Art Institute
June 26 – 30, 2023, Berlin Art Institute, Berlin, Germany
‘Experimental & Personal Filmmaking’ is a 5-day intensive immersive on-site program at BERLIN ART INSTITUTE from June 26 – 30, 2023 that exposes you to alternative film and video history, artist practice, and methods. In addition, it provides you with the knowledge to begin making your own experimental media.
This course is for artists from all disciplines, filmmakers and creative individuals, and anyone else hoping to either achieve a new understanding and practical approach or build upon existing skills in the area of experimental cinema and artists’ moving image practices. All levels of experience are welcomed and encouraged. Sessions will not include instruction on how to operate a camera or editing skills but will instead rely on the intuition of each participant and how they would employ their means of production. All students will need access to a device to shoot video, for example, a smartphone or similar device. In addition, all students will be required to use basic video editing software programs; e.g. a smartphone editing app or such like on MAC or PC. Participants who are comfortable working with more professional cameras and editing software and have access to more sophisticated equipment are also welcome to use them, based on their needs.
