The First Step Is Always The Hardest

Today, we have the first workshop day. I have been around to see what the groups exactly do.

Here is a short review, what happened on tuesday.


On the first day of the Marienthal Seminar 2014, I accompanied a few different workshops throughout the day.

The actor group, guided by Andreas was casting all applicants. It was obvious that most of them were very nervous about the audition. I asked them for what reasons they wanted to participate in the short film. Some of them answered, because they want to experience something new, others said, because they were already acting in their past. They know that it might going to be fun. Some of them are even dreaming about a career as a famous actor.

Later on, after the cast, everybody was glad to start their movie-project.

My next stop was outside, where the camera-crew already started to film. They learn how to use all the technical equipment. By setting the movie, they have to show their know-how.

In the afternoon, I met the last group for the day: the short film group. They had already written the script where they would film. They are also responsible for the light, the cutting and the sound.

So the first workshop day is going to end. The groups are working hard. There are even first results. Tomorrow, we will have an excursion to Bautzen, to visit the Stasi-Museum and the city.
