Subject of course


Film as a medium for documentation is becoming increasingly important. This course offers an introduction to the use of film-based architectural documentation. From the creation of a concept to post-production, the necessary tools are taught to create appealing documentations.

This semester the course is offered in combination with

After introductory lectures in March, filming will take place during the excursion in Cervo and then the clips will be processed into image films.
