Full program here.

Workshop Descriptions:

Collaborative Scriptwriting Workshop

A practical introduction to the “collaborative method” in scriptwriting. Over the course of the two weeks, the class will treat its members as a writing staff and, collectively, they will outline and work on writing the first act of multiple projects. Students will brainstorm the ideas together, and writers will be assigned particular scenes or acts to write.

Digital Documentary Workshop

In this short course students propose, produce and edit short videos documenting the City of Lisbon. The unifying theme for these short documentaries will be “hidden Lisbon.” In the process of the workshop participants will explore how film language, namely visuals, audio and editing, can be employed to achieve a desired affect.

Digital Hollywood Workshop

The “Digital Hollywood” workshop will present a macro-industrial perspective on the incorporation, innovation, and diffusion of digital technologies into the filmed entertainment industries’ production, distribution, and exhibition businesses. This workshop will assess the significance of digital technologies in terms of shifting business practices, revenue streams, digital aesthetics, and the increasing relevance of online markets.

Online Journalism Workshop

Through practical assignments, analysis of successful cases and specialized literature, this workshop will examine the transformations journalism currently faces in order to meet the Digital Revolution, particularly in what concerns the search for a multimedia language.

Creating Music and Audio for Film, Video and Games Workshop

This course will explore current technologies and techniques for the creation of music, audio and sound effects for film, video and games. It will be based primarily on the widely used Apple Logic Studio 8. Students will need to be comfortable with the Mac OS-X platform. However, no prior knowledge of Logic is required. The course will cover basic musical forms, looping and mixing, soft instrument plugins, synchronizing musical materials to video, acquiring and modifying audio effects files, advanced sound treatment using Logic plugins, game audio design, track layering, and surround mixing. Students will complete five short assignments and one longer project using video clips provided for the class or materials that the students may have.

The production facilities will include a suite of Intel iMac computers with Garage Band 4 and Logic Studio 8. Students will need to bring their own stereo headphones (1/8” stereo) for these workstations. The final project will be mixed on the teaching station using 5.1 surround audio.

Photorealistic 3D Graphics Rendering & Simulation Workshop

Photorealistic rendering assists problem solving in scientific, economic, instructional, entertainment, and artistic disciplines. This course surveys the uses of photorealistic 3D computer graphics which range from advertising campaigns to the modeling molecular structures, and delves into the process for creating such imagery. Students are introduced to 3DStudioMax and Mental Ray applications, but will be taught so that they can approach any type of 3D application.
