As a prelude to the 12th edition of Festival de Casteliers,
MICRO CINEMA THEATRE Professional Training Workshop for puppeteers, actors, musicians,
film makers, film animators, writers and directors (students and professionals).
By using video and cctv cameras, projectors and simple technology, we can explore objects, puppets and the human body to discover a new type of cinema. Combining these discoveries with the more traditional forms of performance, we can create ‘Micro Cinema Theatre’.
During this practical workshop you will use a multitude of objects and materials, construct environments to film and improvise performance. You will explore hidden movements and unlock tiny details that are normally lost in a theatre space, you will play with scale, focus, light, sound and music and explore 2 and 3 dimensional worlds. Some objects have more metaphor and meaning than others so you will try to discover which materials work best for the story you are trying to tell.
