The Video Designer operates in a world invaded by images in movement and speaks languages which are continuously contaminated. This professional can work in the areas of both information and entertainment, creating TV spots and intros to shows, graphic formats for TV programs, but also video clips, trailers, viral videos for the web, reporting and documentaries, an institutional video for companies and state organizations, videos for events and conventions, without forgetting about short films, video-art and VJ’ing.

The application fields go from fashion to performative arts, from education to cinema and so forth to all the contexts where using audiovisual products adds value to the desired communication.

The course is recognized by Italian Ministry of Education and Research (MIUR) as an Academic Diploma Level I (180CF)

This specialty foresees following a path dedicated to video and interactivity: video art, setting up of museums, installations, events, performances, live and all those performing arts which require the support of some form of interactive multimedia. During the third year an in depth look and development of all of the aspects regarding the cultural, design, project, technical, pre and post production will be investigated, including the realization of individual projects. It’s a sector in continuous expansion which we can see when visiting museums, during live performances, at the theater, in concerts and in all events.

The first year of the three year program of Video Design and Filmmaking is dedicated to the understanding of the basic fundamental tools of finding the idea, designing, presenting and making the audiovisual product. The cultural disciplines are discussed alongside the technical aspects, in order to allow the student to gain a solid base and be able to handle later on any type of complex audiovisual project. Particular attention is given to the tools necessary to be able to present complete and sufficiently supported projects.

The second year of the three year program of Video Design and Filmmaking revolves around a guided design project. The different design courses attempt to furnish the student with concrete experiences, with the goal of actually realizing a project. A deeper understanding of the technical aspects in the different audiovisual languages is undertaken, also in relation to the specialization courses of the third year. Integral part of the course is the understanding of the software, made for interactivity and the management of multimedia contributions, whereas the cultural disciplines deal with the panorama of video in a historical, sociological, and actual context, aside from covering the language which is required in a professional environment.

The third year of the three year program of Video Design and Filmmaking follows two parallel paths in relation to the two specializations: linear and non-linear. The linear specialization foresees the elaboration of a personal point of view in order to build ones own narrative. It is asked that students express a personal vision of reality: or in other words, their own vision of the world. In this case, it is fundamental to acquire a methodology of working which permits the combining of intellectual design with practical design.
