  • Objectives


    The aim is firstly to give an introduction to the history of dramaturgical thought, with a particular focus on its modern and contemporary aspects. Considering film dramaturgy, the general content of the seminar centres on the passage from text (script) to image and on the work of and with the actor. With regard to the first aspect, screenplays will be read and analysed, giving an account of and discussing their "mechanics"; with regard to the second aspect, some acting school methods will be presented and exercises will be carried out that take the author's work as their object, problematising the role of the essay in cinema.

    1. Historical knowledge of the evolution of dramatic construction thinking.

    2. Structuring dramaturgical thinking and praxis in filmmaking projects.

    3. Ability to consider the actor's representation within the framework of the filmic device.
