I Year - Interpretation of the Text and Frames

The basic training of the first year, revolves around the understanding of the film structure, from the conception to the design, to the primarily visual realization of scenes and then groups of scenes. The two pillars of the first year's training are the courses of Low Budget Visual Writing and Working with the Camera. We acquire the basic techniques to conceive, write and finalize a script and adapt our instruments to the needs of the client, production limits, the director's requests, the format and the destination of the product. The first year of the course focuses on the analysis of the writing instruments of the Three Acts Structure of Hollywood Classic Cinema, in a word, the flow of action. This 24-point structure is first adapted to the scene, then to a group of scenes and finally to a short film. This basic formation is parallel to that of the Videogame language. In particular, we focus on narrative-visual construction techniques (Screenplay), then transforming the writing into frames ( List Framings and Storyboard ), to be realized on the self. Everything is integrated with literacy and training sessions for the film set (Help-Director) and post-production (editing).... [-]

Why Paris?

Calling Paris a capital for the visual and performing arts is a massive understatement. Monet, Renoir, Degas, Matisse… The list of artists and photographers who have worked in Paris is nearly endless.

The Studio Art, Dance & Music Program offers you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to concentrate on and advance your skills in art—painting, drawing, photography, music, or dance—at one of four prestigious institutions in Paris, one of the world’s major artistic centers.... [-]
