If you want to learn how to create emotions on the screen, be sure to sign up to the Arri Group during the 18th Film Spring Open Workshop in Krakow! The mentors will be director Agnieszka Smoczyńska and cinematographer Łukasz Gutt.
During our workshop we will learn how to create emotions using moving image and sound. We will focus on: actors, photos, editing, set design, costumes, sound and rhythm. The participants will shoot short films focusing on a selected emotions,
say Agnieszka Smoczyńska and Łukasz Gutt.
We address our invitation not only to directors and cinematographers but to everyone interested in making a joint etude during the Workshop. If you want to sing up, please send us a link to short film in which you present – in one shot – the transition between emotions (e.g. from love to fear).
We also invite actresses and actors to work in the Arri Group: Camera as an EmotionX-ray. If you are interested, please send us a link to your portfolio.
