COMIC BOOKS Workshop
with SORINA VAZELINA
After 9 years of comics, Sorina Vazelina is still thinking she is at her beginnings. “During the Comic Book Workshop we will go through a short introduction of the magnificent environment which is comics and we will scribble some frames which refine the time into space, amid instants dilated by temperature. It needs a lot of ambition, will and concentration in order to persevere in the techy, obsessive-compulsive environment of frames. We are waiting for you with a pocket story, which we will then see how to paint in order to look good in the visual narrative plotting”.
Sorina Vazelina is a graphic designer and illustrator, born and educated in Timișoara. Among the many projects that she’s been involved into we can name the visual identity for the White Night of the Art Galleries (Bucharest) or the comics compendium: The Book of George. (www.vazelina.ro)

THE FLY DILEMMA
Narrative perspectives in the documentary film. A workshop with Răzvan Georgescu
One of the most important choices that a documentary film author has to make after having found the story and before beginning to shoot is the one related to the narrative perspective that he wishes to approach. Will he want to be an objective observer, a fly on the wall? Or will he prefer to get involved, like a fly in the milk bowl, as we say? Even more, will he be a missionary author, an assumed conscience, a fly on the head? And something else: in what register will he speak? The first person or the third person narrative? Singularly or plurally? Will he prefer the omniscient point of view? Or will he discretely hold silent? Is it possible for the author not to be on the wall, nor in the milk but riding on the storyline, only occasionally getting up from the saddle, like a fly working the land, otherwise letting the heroes tell the story themselves? However, it is certain that the choice of the narrative perspective is there to determine the level of drama in the film and even the technical options. The fly responsibility and its doubts are, therefore, high. To better understand the fly, Răzvan Georgescu is inviting you to an observational flight side by side with it.
