10 – 13 SEPTEMBER 2020 59 DAYS, our newest short animation – documentary, is selected at COVIDaVINCI program at DaVinci International Film Festival, Los Angeles. An ultra-short, Shelter-In-Place, last-minute film program in effort to keep our Creatives creative during the pandemic.
Coronavirus. Staying Home. Three Kids. Stephanos 3 years old, Dionisis 5 years old and Sotiris 9 years old. They can’t see their grandparents. They don’t go to school. A diary. A small documentary. A short animation.
The animation “Bloody Mary” by Zina Papadopoulou is chosen for the seminar titled “Music on stage”, presented by Periklis Liakakis. The accuracy of expression and the message it conveys in just one minute were the strongest factors.
In this seminar, Dramaturgy and how it
manifests itself in cinema, opera and music-theatre will be discussed. This
will be done by analyzing scenes out of the tabloid universe according to their
musical, dramaturgical and visual nature. When does music cue in on a scene?
When does it cue out; What is the role of music in a movie and why some of the
strongest scenes in the history of cinema do not contain music at all? What is
the relationship between music and sound design? How does a composer “marks” his
musical characters in the opera and how in the cinema? Scenes from Hollywood
films, European cinema as well as scenes from opera and music theatre will help
us to observe the aspects of this subject.
