Meeting with a Director

by Mirsini Arvanitis   |   January 18, 2018

After completing the theoretical part of the video session the Lab students will have the opportunity to practice their new acquired video skills in the frame of diverse shooting events during the month of January. Additionally, Solomon will invite different movie directors, which will share their work experience with the Lab students. Last Thursday on 11th of January we were lucky to have the film director Stathis Athanasiou as visitor at the Lab. Stathis explained to the students the differences between shooting documentaries, motion pictures, advertisement as well as the new phenomena of YouTube videos.

Shooting a documentary means that a diverse group of protagonists will drive you as director since with each discussion you will extend your picture of the specific subject while shooting a feature film or short movie you as director will give instructions to the actors. Even though you will do a lot of research beforehand and set a clear goal, you constantly need to change directions and adjust to unforeseen external circumstances.

Furthermore, Stathis explained the new developments within the field of advertisement from television to internet and the phenomena of YouTube where the directors present themselves, while the directors of documentaries or short movies are not known by the majority of their audience.Finally the Lab students gained an insight into Stathis’ future plans focusing on games that will apply innovative learning methods.
