Open Documentary Workshop – Rescheduled for Saturday, June 6

Saturday, June 6, 2015
121 Studios, 121 Dundas Street, London, ON
$25 for Students, $35 for LOMAA Members, and $40 for Non-LOMAA Members

LOMAA is very pleased to be part of the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto’s Touring Filmmaking Workshop Series. In this part lecture-based, part hands-on workshop, we will discuss a DIY or DIWO approach to independent filmmaking based on the exploration of the field as a playground. Through excerpts, personal field and set experiences and a brief introduction to the key concepts around the idea of documentary, we will focus on the act of capturing through aural or visual means.

The main purpose is to convey the balance between freedom in experimentation and respect to the medium.

Participants will have the opportunity to collaboratively shoot a piece using super 8 film and digital sound recordings.

Noé Rodríguez began his professional career in film and media more than 15 years ago. He actively participated in the Spanish film industry working in a broad range of departments and positions that allowed him to experience a wide variety of workflows from film to digital. In parallel, in 2004 he co-founded Epojé Films, an independent documentary production company in which his role as co-director allowed him to direct and produce award-winning pieces for the festival circuit as well as a TV broadcast documentary series. With the support of the Caixa-Canada Scholarship, he moved to Canada to study an MFA in Film Production at York University, Toronto, where he is now based and working as a Technical Coordinator at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT). In addition to freelance work as a cinematographer and location sound recordist, he is currently exploring expanded cinema and performative elements to further experiment with cinematic work as an intersection between sound, image and audience reception.
