STEP BY STEP IMPLEMENTATION

This is an exercise to introduce a multilingual group to an (art)exhibition by means of language learning. The group is divided into smaller groups of 3-5. Their task is to explore the works in the exhibition space and together find certain art objects, all of which are paraphrased on a task sheet. When they find an object they are asked to exchange and discuss certain vocabulary in the host language and in their native languages, related to what they see in the object(s), e.g. terms of colours or items seen in a painting.

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE FACILITATOR

It has to be adapted to the language level of the participants, and to the cultural institution, which could be another museum, or a theatre, or a library, or a cultural centre. Language can also be a barrier, so the practice has to be carefully adapted according to the participants.

TOPIC

Cut-to-camera

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

-To introduce practical camera work to narrative structure of a movie and a careful planning of realising a story in a film shooting

GROUP SIZE

Around 20

MATERIALS

- pens, pencils, A5, A6 size small papers

STEP BY STEP IMPLEMENTATION

An exercise to introduce mostly young people, to practical camera work and narrative structure at the same time. After an introduction to camera perspectives and framings each group gets a camera. The task is to make up a story and depict it in five consecutive shots using five dierent framings (long shot, medium long shot, medium close up, close up + one free shot). This requires careful preparation of every scene, because in the end, all five shots have to be in the right consecutive order on the camera memory, so they can be played on the spot. Each shot can be repeated until the group is satisfied and all fails have to be deleted on the spot.
