THE PROJECTS
PROJECT 1 – FILMING FICTION
Space to explore ideas, prepare a new movie.
PROJECT 2 – FILMING DOCUMENTARY
Find the reason to film, discover the strengths and particularities of the next film.
PROJECT 3 – CREATING ANIMATION CINEMA
Be part of a team and/or develop a new animation cinema project.
PROJECT 4 – WORKSHOP FOR ACTORS
Aimed at professional actors, amateurs and students who wish to work and explore improvisation techniques for cinema. The primitive raw material of the work will be the actor and his instruments - body, voice, imagination - in confrontation with an established argument. Starting from characters and situations already written, it will be up to the actor, with his creative force, to deepen their dimensions and give them meaning. The results of this exploratory process may be part of a feature film.

With:
Joaquim Pavão (director of “SCULP”)
Isabel Fernandes Pinto (actress).
