In November 2018 -after the start of the academic year- DIA organizes a five months professional practical training and guidance trajectory for developing and realizing audiovisual projects.
The use of audiovisual methods and techniques in diverse projects are emerging. Where the majority of studies result in written papers, the rapid development of audiovisual methods and techniques creates a movement towards new approaches and ways of (re)presenting outcomes.
In a period of five months participants will learn to use audiovisual media to valorize their project or (scientific) research into a documentary film. From writing a clear filmplan to the actual phase of realization. Intensive group workshops from professionals to individual coaching and practical assistance. The workshops will take place in the evenings at DIA. The emphasis will be on conducting research and doing fieldwork, gathering data, implementing data into a filmplan, writing, directing, camera, sound, editing and producing. During diaLUX a great variety of audiovisual methods and techniques are available. Depending on the objectives the participants can choose which visual methods they are going to use.
In close collaboration with institutes like the dutch broadcasting organization VPRO, the NTR, Zelovic productions, filmtheater De Uitkijk and DUS film the program connects the participant with the world of professionals. Several masterclasses and film screenings will be organized during the course period.
