Il Tempo Di una Storia

@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

Se ti piace scrivere (e quindi anche leggere), StudioStorie fa per te; se ami il cinema, la letteratura, i fumetti e, a prescindere dall’età, vuoi scoprire i segreti della scrittura, StudioStorie fa per te; se pensi di avere talento o, al contrario, non sei molto sicuro di averne, StudioStorie fa per te.

StudioStorie è una scuola, divertente ma rigorosa, che ti aiuterà a coniugare istinto e regole: perché scrivere non è solo improvvisazione, e neppure mero esercizio di stile. Scrivere è questione di cuore, di pancia e di testa. E siccome la tecnica si può apprendere e l’abilità perfezionare, è nata StudioStorie, la prima scuola che svela l’esistenza di alcuni princìpi comuni alla base dei diversi generi narrativi. Come in un gioco di prestigio, ma senza trucchi (tranne quelli del mestiere), l’esperienza e l’entusiasmo di Sergio Badino ti consentiranno di mettere in luce le tue attitudini e di acquisire la competenza necessaria per scrivere (bene) storie (belle).

A New Picture House

"Cinema can make sense of history, distort memories, and shape time."In A New Picutre House from Huddersfield, Vol. 11, John Harrison from Studio Dekka talks about the creation of Dewsbury's New Picture House. In the spirit of the James Joyce's first Cinema, Volta, established in 1909 in Dublin, where showing obscure Italian arthouse films was pushing the envelope of what cinema could mean, Harrison and 15 cohorts took it upon themselves to open a new picture house where they too would push the expectations of film. In this unique presentation, he shares his story, and the stories of others who share his vision. Get some popcorn!

The Magic Lantern

"It is so important that as a student you go out of your comfort zone, out of the faculty, out of your student house - because its the only way to connect to the city." What is 'cinema' all about and how can 'a cinema' canbe a natural intersection for informal learning and entertainment, for art and science, for students and city? In "The Magic Lantern" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, David Deprez addresses these questions. As an artistic director of Lumière Cinema Maastricht, David plans to involve students in the programming and using films in their academic curricula at Maasstricht University.

PechaKucha es un formato ideal para festivales de cine

Recorte de prensa del último evento, en el marco del Festival Internacional de Cine de Lebu.   Anunciada como una de las principales novedades de esta 17ª versión del Festival Internacional de Cine de Lebu (Ficil), la presentación de Pechakucha se realizó con un buen marco de público en Deltoro Restobar, ubicado a un par de kilómetros de Lebu, la noche del martes.  El fin, al igual que las jornadas que tradicionalmente se realizan en Concepción desde 2009, era dar a conocer el trabajo de realizadores, jóvenes y de trayectoria, en un formato breve, con 20 imágenes presentadas en 20 segundos.  Hay que recordar que Pechakucha es una iniciativa internacional de difusión de proyectos creativos, creada en Japón el año 2003, y que funciona en más de 900 ciudades alrededor del mundo, siendo Concepción la única sede oficial que existe en Chile.  Resulta llamativo el que nunca se hubiese efectuado una unión entre este estilo de exposición (en general más asociado al diseño) y el mundo cinematográfico, principalmente, pues los cineastas acostumbran a "pitchear" o vender su producción, normalmente en busca de financiamiento.  Quizás por eso es que las presentaciones fluyeron sin mayores complicaciones. El resultado fue grato y las virtudes del formato lograron que el espectador aprendiera en menos de 7 minutos bastante sobre los proyectos y/o personas que participaron. Claudia Pino, directora del Ficil, destacó que es una actividad que pretenden fortalecer y sumar trabajo en conjunto a largo plazo. "Queremos que Pechakucha siga siendo parte del Festival, de todas formas se va a instaurar como algo fijo. Tiene sentido para lo que se hace acá, es un formato que permite conocer proyectos de forma rápida. Tenía la confianza de que si lo hacíamos saldría bien y así fue", explicó.  La noche, como es tradición en esta instancia, contó con la presentación en vivo del músico penquista Cristián Núñez, guitarrista y voz de la banda Los Insolentes, show que sirvió como intermedio para separar las presentaciones.    JORNADA EXITOSA Las presentaciones comenzaron con la exposición del director nacional Jorge Olguín. Realizó un breve recorrido por sus inicios en el cine y sus títulos de fantasía que le han otorgado un renombre a nivel nacional y latinoamericano.  Luego participaron algunos realizadores participantes del Ficil: Cristian Mellado, José Miguel Barriga, Matías Burgos, Rolando Carileo y Freddy Benítez.  Cada uno utilizó diferentes formas para contar sus proyectos, pero también hubo quienes decidieron explicar desde lo personal el trabajo que realizan.  Alejandra Sepúlveda, directora de Pechakucha Concepción, se mostró sorprendida por lo parejos a la hora de exponer de los participantes. "En el área audiovisual están acostumbrados a presentar su material. Tienen que hacerlo para vender sus proyectos. Fue acertado el agregar a Jorge Olguín, porque dictó pauta de lo que vendría después. Las otras presentaciones también fueron interesantes y lúdicas", agregó.  Sepúlveda dice que una de las lecciones que dejó la experiencia fue el hecho de que un público más acotado permite una mejor interacción con los expositores, algo que beneficia el diálogo posterior.
