Class Audiovisual Direction Workshop

  • Presentation


    This curricular unit is an introduction to audiovisual filmmaking, based on video recording and editing, which seeks to go beyond the technical aspects of video production to explore its role in personal discovery, artistic expression and social criticism. The focus will be on self-exploration, critical analysis of society and the transformation of raw experiences into aesthetic creations, whether in fictional narrative, video art, documentary, music videos or essay. Students will embark on a creative journey where they will complete different tasks to learn and master the fundamentals of video capture and editing, culminating in a final project that communicates a personal narrative.
