Research projects

    • Norwegian

    Basert på Dr. Karen Pearlmans konsept med Onscreen Draft skal vi utvikle en preproduksjonsmetode for dansefilm basert på motion capture og AR/VR-teknologi. Dette innebærer å finne adekvate teknologier og utforme en metodikk basert på dem som er praktisk og effektiv for produksjon av dansefilm. Det skal også gjøres undersøkelser for å se på om en film laget med denne metoden oppleves som bedre av et publikum.

  • "An exploration of truth vs.fiction in the biographical screenplay genre." The project focuses on the screenplay genre as a distinctive form of artistic practice and its subgenre, the historical/biographical drama. It explores how a biographical screenplay, through specific poetic tools such as incarnation and reenactment, can generate a unique kind of knowledge of its subject.The main artistic outcome will be a screenplay drama, based on Ibsen´s “chaotic years", 1856-1866.
