Obsah kurzu

This course aims to teach students not just what is it about but HOW is it about. The course covers following topics:

-the process of visualisation, story and literary screenplay, alongside literary work, developing the director’s concept of a text

-what does the story offer in terms of the film’s direction? Why make it into a film? – work with space, the role of space – nature, architecture in the story, placing of figures in space (from the story phase envisage the space, the alternation of exteriors and interiors, their role, work with the colour of space in relation to the colour of costumes, light and shadow)

-why does my story take place precisely here? Do I use space solely as a background for characters, or do I invest it with other meaning? Do I want it to reflect the inner world of my characters?

-technical script and storyboard – camera angles, ground plan with camera positions. Perspective.

-subjective perspective versus objective perspective – determining the basic viewpoint of the narrative.
