Assembling Essemble – International Conference and Workshop on Film Technology
Lisbon, October 5th and 6th, 2017
The closing event of the Essemble project, a two-day conference and workshop called "assembling essemble" was held last 5th and 6th October, which brought together more than fifty national and international specialists in the areas of virtual and augmented reality.
The Essemble project is an initiative of Universidade Lusófona developed in partnership with the ifs- International Film School Cologne, Luca Art School in Brussels, MOME Budapest and TH Köln, five European schools that have come together over the last seven years to develop, first with funding from the EU MEDIA program and then with funding from the ERASMUS + program, this unique project of training and research whose main objective was to explore the current frontiers of language and film narrative and how its limits increasingly extend the most diverse aesthetic and artistic domains.
For this closing event, the organizers decided to offer a VR train the trainers workshop on October 5th, developed in partnership with the Bayerische Filmzentrum, and a conference on the 6th where case studies and debates on how VR is more and more available to public.
The quality of the various presentations and projects presented and the richness of the different participants that shared their work and experience during these two days were factors that contributed in a definitive way to the success of this event that closed perfectly a unique and differentiated project.
To conclude the event, a screening of some of the films produced during the various editions of Essemble was also one of the highlights of the two days.
