How can I implement my creative skills and knowledge from my profession in moving image production? We try to show you the congruence between your profession and the issues in the moving image medium. Musicians, for example, understand a lot about rhythm, an element that represents an essential moment in the sequence of images and their length. Scenographers understand narration in space, which in turn can come into play in the moving image in a spatial installation with video projections. Actors from the field of visual communication have a good understanding of moments such as semantics and semiotics, which ultimately has an effect on the depth and stringency of communication in the moving image, just as it does in static images.

Participants learn to deal with the variety of technical possibilities and to assess the adequate means for their production intention. They learn the basics of craftsmanship and practise how a project is conceived, realised and implemented until publication. In the process, the experience of cadrage (image detail), logical image sequence (narration), rhythm and image aesthetics is strengthened. The other component, sound, is examined and discussed in detail in terms of its effect and message. The moment of "light" is not only considered as an important element in the composition of the picture, but also in the intention to present the publication in the form of a scenographic room installation.

In the last part of the workshop, the work samples are presented to each other in a final presentation in the respective intended publication channels.

Here the circle closes, revealing how important design decisions are in relation to the intended publication channel. Someone who produces a "reel" for the smartphone and Instagram will design different images and image sequences than the person who produces for the stage and a large-screen projection.
