Silence, Ready to Roll…!
Immediately an idea or theme is proposed, so as to stimulate reactions and new input from the kids – many discussions follow before reaching a decision all together. Starting from the first day of their stay, kids begin to sketch drawings and to write down their stories or dreams; they take turns experimenting what it implies to film each other in action. The plot gradually takes shape… At this point all the staff splits up the participants dividing them in groups in order to allow everybody to take part in each artistic field involved. The set design, creating locations and costumes have a priority since they need to be ready before the actual filming takes place. At the same time, protagonists are chosen giving everybody an equal opportunity. The composition of the sound track is a steady work in progress: often it needs to follow events and other times it is the leading role. During the final days, whilst working at the editing, time is dedicated to preparing the credits. At the end of the project, this short movie created by the kids of Arteaparte, will be shown parents and friends and each kid will triumphantly take home their own DVD – an unforgettable memory!
FILM PROJECT 1 “Talking about FEARS” July 01 to 07, 2018 (age 9 to 14)
The thrill of fear can often turn into a cause for laughter. During this week the kids will meet up and recount their personal fears – stories to tell also in English! They will be able to confront themselves and together face both real and imaginary fears in a light-hearted manner, at times even transforming them into whimsical episodes.
These are the guidelines to this film the children will be shooting, for which they will be composing a sound track full of suspense and through different forms of art they will portray their “monsters”.
FILM PROJECT 2 “On the Road” July 08 to 14, 2018 (age 10 to 15)
Often one wonders “who am I…and where do I come from?”
This project wants to use the concept of interview/inquiry (and therefore of listening and understanding) in order to explore the stories of those people who have had to abandon their own world and their own home.
The aim is to build new identities and to invent together new forms of aggregation, founded on the appreciation of differences.
The media for this explorative and creative journey will be audio-visual, thus giving the children the possibility of playing with a form of art based on recording and superimposition of images and sounds.
