Workshop #1 „Beatbox your music”

In this workshop held by Reinhard Zach, rhythms and sounds you create by yourself will be recorded and made into songs. A short introduction into the world of beatboxing, as well as simple recording techniques will give you the tools for your first compositions. With the help of the right mixing technique and digital effects every song will get its very own final touches. The goal is that every group records their own album.

Workshop #2 „Film Visions – Film Realities, the journey from reading a script to creating visuals with production design and costume”

Monika Buttinger and Julia Oberndorfinger will show you the interplay of various film professions with a focus on production design and costume with concrete examples.
In the mainly theoretical first part you will accustom yourself with the main terms of the profession based on film excerpts and photos, and gain practical tips for professional orientation.
In the practical second part you will get a short introduction to your very own moodboard based on a selected scene from a script. At the end you will get a direct comparison (film visions and film realities) with a real example of the artistic range and design possibilities.
Monika Buttinger (“Der Boden unter den Füßen”) is a costume designer, and Jualia Oberdorfinger (“Gipsy Queen”) is a production designer, both of whom are active in film and television. Together they have worked on the production and costume design for multiple films: “Das Pferd auf dem Balkon”, “Cops”, “Die Niere”, and my others.

Workshop #4 „Pocket Cinema”

Steven Soderbergh did it. So did Bentley. Films and advertisements that were filmed using only a smart phone. But how to work with film with only the smallest amount of tools, reduced to only your own smart phone? In a world of continually improving smart phones, Manuel Diepold will answer this question with you. The focus will be both on camera work as well as cutting techniques directly on your smartphone.
Together with David Panhofer, Manuel Diepold is a freelance camera man and filmmaker. He teaches Multimedia at the BORG Grieskirchen.
