Tell your story!
While the first part of this seminar was focusing on storytelling, the second part will focus on stories which are being told or enacted and recorded on video or documented with a photo camera.
We will learn how to use the cameras of the media laboratory of the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences and also how to edit a video with the editing programme (DaVinci Resolve 15) in the media lab and we will also work with the photo cameras of the media laboratory. Both of these introductions and applications will be assisted by the tutors of the media lab.
The first video/ photo topic will be an improvised story which you make up in a group and it can build onto the learning of the first part of this seminar. There should be mixed teams of Erasmus students and regular students exploring Berlin in the summer and researching with the camera or performing in public space surrounding the topic of borders/ walls and segregation in this city.
In June, two groups from Israel will visit the Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences and there will be a chance to exchange on the method of testimony video, to make your own video and to present and discuss it with the students from Oranim College and the Tel Aviv University. The focus in these two exchanges will be on identity, conflict and migration/ flight.
