EDITING SHORT FILMS

Short-term exchanges of groups of pupils

Meeting in Portugal

Paredes de Coura

15 – 21 March 2020

Students first present the films they made in Macedonia Republic as they have improved them in their own schools; then they do a comparative analysis between the original and the new versions; students evaluate each other’s changes and improvements using worksheets organized around set of cinematic technique criteria.
Students attend a workshop about the technical elements of a movie – focus, light, photography, composition, sound. In this phase, they also learn how to use film-editing applications to improve their films.
Again, in multicultural teams they choose one of the short films on social topics, among the ones they have already
worked on in their own schools and, together, they try to make further improvements. Then they discuss and give feedback
