SOUND WORKSHOP

Kirsi Korhonen
Sound Workshop 09:00 - 16:00

Kirsi’s sound lectures cover the basics of film sound workflow from field recording to creating all layers of sound and mixing a total soundtrack. In order to awaken the ideas and the ears, there are discussions on film examples, but also listening rehearsals of our everyday surroundings. The basic understanding of sound waves, frequencies, dynamics and equipment gives us confidence on working with dialogue, but also room to experiment with atmosphere, rhythm, point of view, time, place, and the feelings that sound can bring into a film.

SCRIPTWRITING / DIRECTING

Vilja Autiokyrö
Scriptwriting 10:00 - 13:00

Salla Sorri
Directing 14:00-17:00

The scriptwriting class by Vilja explores the different stages of a screenplay such as a synopsis, treatment, script. She introduces some key tools that are important in writing and storytelling such as story, plot, drama, conflict and the turning point, character, theme and subject matter. How do we proceed from an idea in three sentences to 100 pages of dialogue and screen directions? How to find your own voice. How do you express it in the film – especially in writing, creating ideas, pitching, developing, etc.?

In Salls’s workshops, the participants absorb the director’s role, skills and tools. They get familiar with the basics of creating and maintaining trust with the crew and with the performers. The main part of the workshops consists of theory and exercises about how to think, approach and lead people as performers.

The acting classes led by Jaakko Kiljunen will take inspiration from various methods and approaches such as Stanislavsky, the Suzuki-method and the Viewpoints-technique.

The participants also study ways to approach presence, listening and awareness.

Mikko’s scriptwriting workshop looks closely into everyone’s projects. The students try to employ the new tools they’ve acquired and use them to develop their core ideas. Together with the participants, they discuss what they want to express? How can they recognize what is important to them and how to nurture and develop it at the same time? How to tolerate the uncertainties and insecurities? How to contact others? How to proceed and get paid? Writing together – a threat or a possibility?

Sound Sessions With Kirsi Korhonen
17:00- 24:00

Kirsi’s sound lectures cover the basics of film sound workflow from field recording to creating all layers of sound and mixing a total soundtrack. In order to awaken the ideas and the ears, there are discussions on film examples, but also listening rehearsals of our everyday surroundings. The basic understanding of sound waves, frequencies, dynamics and equipment gives us confidence on working with dialogue, but also room to experiment with atmosphere, rhythm, point of view, time, place, and the feelings that sound can bring into a film.
