Film, Artificial Intelligence and Corporeality Workshop

While the dynamics of film production are primarily based on rational logics, technology makes other approaches possible, such as those that emphasize the body and vital rhythms as engines for research and creation.

This workshop aims to delve into a systematic process of working with images, placing emphasis on the body as the driving force behind the cinematic act. Through the exploration of body rhythms and movements, we seek their translation into the generation of images, audio and text for cinematic work. Additionally, we will put into practice other editing methods that do not rely on reason, such as sensory tests, circadian rhythms, fractals and editing with body transducers.


  • Reflect on the use of algorithms and artificial intelligence systems in image manipulation.
  • Learn the fundamentals of open-source code and Google Colab to execute image manipulation algorithms.
  • Experiment with the body as the driving force in film editing.

  • Saturday 18 November, 10 am to 7 pm
  • Sala Raval CCCB
  • €60 (€40 with Pro or Press Pass). Includes coffee breaks and lunch
  • 20 places available
  • Participants should bring a reasonably powerful computer and have access to a Gmail account
