Observation : Creation - Film as a narrative tool for designers

Observation : Creation - Film as a narrative tool for designers

How do we turn a portrait of a person into an emotional narrative?

The moving image has gained enormous relevance in communication, within the past decade. Designers, who used to illustrate their ideas with photography, can nowadays translate their entire narrative to the screen with easily accessible technological tools. The camera takes on two different roles: It is the medium for observation and in the meantime a tool for atmospheric staging. As an instrument of observation, the camera helps to capture and comprehend complex processes. But the camera is able to achieve even more. It offers the possibility to present the object of observation in a special light - ambiance, sound, and rhythm become a defining part of the design. The workshop Observation : Creation is an introductory course to the utilization of film for designers / architects / artists. We will observe a personal portrait: Once through the lens of the 'anthropologist', to comprehend and document the person's personal mode of living. Afterward, we will take on the lens of the 'designer', to stage the scene with the methods of filmmaking. - A workshop by Silvia Cannarozzi & Rasa Weber
