The role of materials in the creative process of filmmaking

A unique opportunity to explore the creative process at the heart of filmmaking as Carla Simón shares some of the materials that finally took shape as Estiu 1993 (2017). We shall also examine a range of materials used by other filmmakers to imagine, design, flesh out and prepare their films—including locations, visual references, colour palettes, tests, trials and paper mockups, among others—focusing on Meritxell Colell’s Con el viento (2018), Celia Rico’s Viaje al cuarto de una madre (2018) and Jonás Trueba’s La reconquista (2016), which all feature on A Bao A Qu’s Inside Cinema website as part of the Moving Cinema European programme.

This activity ties in with the Satellites: Carla Simón parallel section.

Carla Simón will also give a masterclass on working with actors during castings, rehearsals and shoots.
