The Year Two students have successfully wrapped up their individual video projects!
The project was divided into two phases. Phase 1 was all about skill training: the students were given classes by Hans Laschuit and Jo van Laar, who are usually teaching at the Maastricht Theatre Academy. Their classes were about professional filmmaking, including not only properly adjusting camera settings, lighting etc., but also proper editing and formatting.
Next to that, the new member of the iArts staff Sem Shayne was coaching the students in realizing works about their own passions in the field of photography.
In addition, guest teacher Anne Büscher was providing the second year students with time and space for coached experimenting with different materials in the Academy’s workshops, such as the bookmaking or ceramics workshop.
In Phase 2 of the project, the students have used their newly acquired skills to develop individual filming projects within five weeks. Individually coached by the team from Video Power, each student has created their own video work based around the topic “the world in transition”. The results were very diverse, varying from documentary-style or storytelling to a music video. See photos for visual excerpts of different works.
Video Power is an independent film production organization based in Maastricht. Two members of their team, which consists of producers and filmmakers, worked together with iArts to provide professional coaching on the levels of concept creation, technical guidance and general feedback.
