Activities around the Film Language

During their growth young people orient themselves on role models of their environment: parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, teacher etc.

With the appearance of film in the cinema and the television, which represents an expression of our society, a new dimension of role models have come along, which meanwhile took a considerable space in the socialization of growing young people.
New technical possibilities of the reproducer such as computer, iPad, iPhone and the skills of young people to handle them, facilitate the access to moving pictures at any time.

To support and accompany children's and adolescents, their parents as well as teachers in a creative and critical handling of movies, I offer presentations and workshops. Depending on the shape of the occasion, these activities are  realized by me or in collaboration with a film director. The objective is to  explore the language of existing film productions as well as to get to know the cinematic techniques, to be able to express oneself with moving images. In this context the children's ideas are standing in the foreground.
