Objectives

The two paths (Performer and FilmMaker) allow the student to find an occupation within the theatrical field, cinematographic field, and within the fields of television and museums. At the end of each professional path, the student will have the skills to become an entrepreneur within the cultural world.

The faculty is made out of high professional profiles who have established solid networks in the their professional sector. To have such relevant figures as teachers, guarantees the students not only to learn the theory, but also to acquire several skills through labs and internships. These experiences will enrich the students’ cultural baggage and will give them the opportunity of professional growth in the direction and production fields.

As part of the faculty there are Maria Shmaevich, Andrea Baracco, Alessandro Maggi, Silvio Peroni for the Performer minor. Instead, the film maker’s teachers body is composed of Enrico Maria Artale, Marcello Cotugno, Vincenzo Manna. Lastly, the Producer minor is taught by Aldo Allegrini, Tommaso Mattei and Valentina Re.

Since the English Language has become fundamental in the entertainment world, it is of vital importance that the students acquire a mastery of the English language. Therefore, they will be able to shine  in the international context as well.

The study plan incorporates formative paths common to all two fields (Performer and Filmmaker) and others more specific to each minor. The lectures, furthermore, are integrated by encounters with VIPs from the entertainment world, labs, project works and internships.
The lectures, the labs and the open try-outs are held in the Casale di San Pio V.

FilmMaker

The Bachelor’s Degree in Performing Arts, majoring in Filmmaking, offers the necessary tools to work in this sector: a sound theoretical knowledge and a practical introduction to the main techniques of writing, filming, production and post-production.

The Filmmaker is much more than a director or an author in the field of show business as, they not only design and conduct set-up projects, but also deal with the production of content in the sectors of cinema, TV, advertising and multimedia.
Furthermore, the Filmmaker is also involved in projects of awareness-raising of the culture of arts and media and works on the whole production chain of the design and implementation of didactic-teaching projects in the fields of music, theatre, cinema and arts.

DESIGN AND PROJECT
During this lab, students will handle the project from its early stages, from the development of the concept to the drafting of a plot, from the script to the planning of the implementation phase.

PRODUCTION
