In October 2018 -after the start of the academic year- DIA organizes a NINE months professional practical training and guidance trajectory for academic scholars in developing and realizing their audiovisual projects.
The use of audiovisual methods and techniques in research projects are emerging in the sciences. Where the majority of the studies in sciences still result in written dissertations, the rapid development of audiovisual methods and techniques creates a movement towards new methodological approaches and ways of (re)presenting research outcomes.
In a period of nine months time 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 MEdiaLAB 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.
