UC Directing in the Field
Fieldwork in Belgium
Course supervisors: Flo Flamme
This course starts with an introductory seminar and then proceeds with discontinuous periods of research and field-trips in which small groups of students engage in contacts with locals and chose locations in view to develop a concept for their film projects.
They do all of this with formal limitations, within a limited time frame, within a limited geographical area and within a broadly defined imposed theme.
After presenting their projects to peers, each group in the class organizes independently their shooting and editing to occur in short periods of time.
The course concludes with individual written reflection on the potential and shortcomings of the group’s project conceptualization, and as well on the role that each one contributed to the realisation of the collective film.
