This season's topic is the audio-visual essay.

October  01-05, 2018

This seminar is yet another experiment, highly dependent on your  
creative input, technical know-how (how to cut film-clips), and your  
love of film!! If ALL of these are YOUR THING, then WELCOME!!
Usually, film analysis is done in a different medium – writing. Is  
there any alternative? Can we reflect on film thru this very medium  
itself? It is being done – in the form of the audiovisual essay [see  
the websites of Frames or Audiovisualcy], which in a way combines  
formal film analysis with the concept and praxis of the mash-up. Thus  
– let's get practical!!
This seminar should also serve as a kind of ‘ignition’ to spark off  
networking between Czech and German students.
