«Making an analog film in the digital age»
The advent of digital techniques has not changed the nature of analogue audiovisual, but has simply made the interface of devices necessary for its implementation more flexible. This is how new audiovisual practices dynamite the preconceived frameworks of our relationship to the image and overturn all criteria relating to cinema. Making a film today, when we are witnessing a recomposition of social and political ties through streams of images which, at the speed of hundreds of hours per second, fill our screens, could seem superfluous, even futile. To go against this overbidding, the training proposes a double transversal approach. Firstly, to understand and practice the digital post-production device, in all its magnitude, by browsing and explaining the evolution of the cinematographic image in its history. Secondly an introduction to filmmaking through the personal development of a film project in its entirety. This is how we will have to retain cinematographic categories allowing us to understand the relationship between transparency and opacity of the medium, in order to reconnect with the formal issues in the filmmaking of the project. This and the particularities of filming in Super 8 B&W, close to the origins of the medium itself, will allow us to lay the foundations of the film to be made.
