Teaching language



- Understanding the visual grammar in photography and in film;

- Analyze the representation space and its meaning from compelling projects in the history of photography and film;

- Purchasing a visual discourse that presents itself as a field of exchange between communication experiences related to the image;

- Mastering visual skills to broaden knowledge capable of stimulating the relationship between photography and cinema.

Learning outcomes and competences

Acquire theoretical and practical knowledge that enables students to understand the importance of image in projects of the two scientific areas.

Working method



Acquire knowledge and skills that relate to the production of still images and moving images. The content structuring that characterizes this course is divided between the exploitation of technological support, inseparable from the image capture, and the methods of research, experimentation and reflection used in the construction of specific projects.
