More details on each workshop:

1. "Archival Footage" with Maria Royo
You can't shoot during a lockdown situation? Don't worry, the internet is full of archival footage that you can still access. Learn some important information you have to bear in mind when looking for the hidden gems of historic footage from one of the people involved in finding the shots used in the film “The Silence of Others,” winner of 2 Emmys and Berlinale Peace Award, among many others.

2. “Building Narratives” with Jon-Carlos
Discover the tools and techniques critical to building a narrative before ever writing the words “FADE IN.” Join Jon-Carlos for a deep dive into the “writer’s homework” of outlining, beat sheets, character / story arc mapping, and more.

3. “Auteur Theory” with Leandro Goddinho
What is a good director/movie? And who decides it? Students will be briefly introduced to the Auteur Theory in this workshop and investigate what aesthetic concepts, topics, trademarks, and social/political/historical contexts define an auteur.
