Today marked the first day of the film studio taught by Alla Kovgan. We started the day by going around the table and talking about the films we like and why we like them. Alla then showed us some of her films and talked about the ideas and processes behind them. She also talked about her evolution as a film maker.
“Traces of the Trade”
Alla Kovgan: Co-Director, Editor, and Writer
Alla Kovgan: Director, Screenplay, Editor
After that, we watched a few provocative movies that were breath taking.
Alla then talked about the grammer of film: shots, angles, background and foreground. A movie starts when you tell a story or express meaning. The exercise for the day was to film each other talking about what we want to be in 10 years from now.
