Our way of teaching

You will begin by acquiring all the vocabulary essential for understanding and thinking about cinematography. Once this common language is established, you will assimilate all the protocols necessary for the performance of film writing. Immediately, you will experience the creative process within the framework of a so-called institutional cinema and then explore the counterproposals developed throughout History. Finally, you will synthesize everything you have learned in a final stage where you can formalize your own vision in accordance with the contemporaneity of our discipline. In parallel, you will be invited to become familiar with the discourses and practices of sister disciplines of cinema such as theater, series and even video games.
