educational

The Educational offers lectures and discussions that intend to bring together media theorists and creators. What's new in the world of Digital Series? Which new ideas and formats are being developed? Where are we at, and where are we going? And how can we theorize Digital Series through a film and media analytical perspective? Besides the theoretical reflection of Digital Series, this year's focus will be on the work of the creators. We'll take a special look at sound design and story development.

Sound Design

Talking about the importance of sound design, George Lucas once said - "Sound is half the picture." We will talk about the relevance and the importance, and creative possibilities of sound design and music. We will discuss whether and why sound design is still neglected in many productions and why this should definitely not happen.
