One-day online preparation module*
Students will receive lectures by Peter Maniura and Kriss Russmann (further lecturers may be announced at a later stage) on contemporary media and audience environment for live- broadcast/streamed concerts and recorded concerts. The “gold standard” of concert coverage with a camera script using a conventional OB will be analysed; storytelling, understanding a score, structuring a camera script, rhythm and cutting ratio, placement and types of cameras and gallery technique will be examined. Also, a presentation on all aspects of remote camera work will be included. All lectures will be illustrated with video clips and links will be provided to full performances for later study.
Additionally, all participants will be able to present a short clip of their previous work featuring an orchestra or classical music performance of some sort and receive critique from the lecturers. Mans Per Fogelberg of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra will also introduce the orchestra and its camera set up. In preparation for the physical workshop, students will be asked to examine the artists and repertoire for the concert. They will also receive input by a script supervisor on how to prepare their scores.
