“In the way of…” is a classic exercise for every 2nd year student where they can apply their theoretical learnings from seminars to the realisation of a clip sticking as closely as possible to a reference film or tv series.
In the way of…
“In the way of…” is one of many production exercises offered at the school to train future technicians.
The point is to select a clip from a short or feature fiction film, recreate is as faithfully as possible with the means supplied by the school.
For each excerpt, there are high stakes on the set, image, actors’ directing and the question of shooting the original version or the French adaptation.
For this purpose, the school provides the students with the necessary equipment, the shoot is done in the studio and the editing in the booths available inside the school.
The 2nd year students from CinéCréatis Lyon chose clips from “Old Boy”, South Korean film by Park Chan-Book, “Requiem for a Dream” by Darren Aronofsky, Damien Chazelle’s drama on the Music world, Whiplash, and finally an incursion into fantasy with Juan Antonio Bayona’s A Monster’s call.
