The goal of the excercise was to introduce the participants to film production and visual language by doing a short movie out of a nonsensical script.
The script itself was created in an improvisational excercise by the group, where everyone adds only one word to the story thus removing himself from authorship. A script generated in such a way has often little sense to it, allowing the students to create their own visual language instead of blindly copying established concepts of storytelling.
Each short movie was concieved, filmed, cut and dubbed by USANII LAB students under supervision of Michael Rybakov, a guest lecturer from the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design.
