FIFTH ELEMENT – CINEMATOGRAPHERS LAB
The 3rd Arctic Countries Film Festival ARCTIC OPEN is hosting Film Story Through Dance, a boundary motion project and a lab.
This year’s lab revolves around a fifth element, human. Humans use four elements – water, air, earth and fire – and their personal experiences as media for conveying the challenges being faced by the North. The lab focuses mostly on visual effects of dance movements, northern landscapes, and how the Arctic can be rendered through embodiments, nature and interaction.
We welcome adult cinematographers who are based in North-Western Russia. The six days of the lab are meant to be a crash course into ‘plastic’ cinematography. The videos participants will be tasked to make will be shown during the days of Arctic Open. All participants will be issued due certificates.
This week-long crash course is designed to enhance your cinematographic skills through interaction with dancers on camera. After a series of daily practice sessions, participants are expected to produce 5 videos which will be screened at the festival. Individual instruction will be provided by course masters to each participant to assist them with concepts for their videos.
