I International e-Workshop of Audiovisual

From July 22 to 31, 2020
Cancellation of workshop due to low enrollment

Director: Júlia de Balle
Tutor: Alba Domènech

Program

RCR Summer Workshop is born of a way of understanding architecture and landscape from a humanistic spirit. The coexistence in a specific space and time of different creative disciplines during the on-site workshop has generated synergies for mutual enrichment. The online format is heir to these ideas transferred to a virtual campus.

The workshop is designed following four main ideas that articulate the program:

  • Competition Format: Closed exercises that condense a complex process within a specific time frame
  • Transversality: An integrative interdisciplinary approach
  • Sharing: Shared creativity fostering the capacity for dialogue
  • Experience: Understanding derived from observation, participation and experience

The workshop is intended to deepen the audiovisual language, both theoretically and practically, focused on the representation of space and architecture. The course is developed from RCR Arquitectes’ approach to architecture and its conception of the visual representation of a work or project. From there, we will investigate the different phases of the audiovisual production process and lay the foundations for each one to carry out a creative exercise.

Creativity must be at the origin of the concept, present at the initial moment where we give answer to the question we are asked, and should be shared by all the participants, being the common thread of the process. Everything results from creativity.

The Program consists in

  • Online Campus. A conference offer will be combined with various extension webinars and small group consultations. The topics will be: the foundations of audiovisual language, audiovisual formats, storytelling, editing, the use of sound and music, workflow with Premiere Pro and After Effects.
  • Creative Atelier. Each participant will make an audiovisual according to their interest and need: present an architecture project, present a work or a space, a documentary or experimental short film about light, a material, etc. There will be corrections by Júlia de Balle, Alba Domènech and RCR Arquitectes.
  • Open Program. A series of conferences in common with the Architecture and Landscape and the Photography workshops.
