Whereas technologies of the past just extended the human capacities of sight and representation, contemporary technologies involve the emergence of the “new anthropology” which changes the perception of one’s own body. The response of visual artists is to invent new visual means, such as immersive art – VR and AR installations.

While nowadays most of the art teachers and professors use constructivist learning principles in their work, methodical application of the theory to every practical aspect of everyday teaching is still rare to the best of my knowledge. Educators tend to stick to traditional methods here and there, even when they are proven to be less effective. One of the key principles of the constructivist approach is putting your students cognitive processes first. Doing this can not only bring small changes to the classroom work, but also rise bigger questions about the structure of the curriculum, the type and order of tasks, and can even lead to the questioning of a school’s rating system.

The academic and industrial arenas can often maintain their own detached and distinct cultures of practice. This has traditionally been conspicuously true in the case of the film studies discipline, where students, often educated with a highly theoretical or artistic focus, find the transition to a practical and team-based production environment a traumatic experience.

Making a film is a very personal process. Especially for a student of the film school. This is an initiation step, and a role of a tutor is extremely difficult. Teaching a film is about vibrating with a student then real teaching. The personal contact is crucial. We need to understand the student, then hear his/her first ideas,and step by step help him/her to evoke the full story and then the full cinematic form.

A painter learns by copying what other painters realized before. A musician or a writer do the same. Why the teaching methods of cinema are so different from those of other arts? How is it possible to teach objective matters in a subjective and multidisciplinary art like Cinema?

Animation and experimental film forms have unlimited artistic possibilities. Teaching non-fiction animation allows for students to create documentary films that dive into sensitive personal and political topics, such as interviewing a migrant worker, or someone who is seeking asylum, a minor, or a person who can not for some reason speak openly and freely without risk, allowing for them express their concerns but not be visually identifiable. How can teaching animation encourage film students to take artistic risks and to address urgent global issues? Animation and experimental forms broaden the range of storytelling possibilities.

Fast developing technologies of visualization provide new ways for individual expression not only for artists and filmmakers. Internet users have acquired an opportunity “to visualize their lives” by mobile applications thus becoming the new multipliers of images. What’s the secret of their extraordinary popularity? Perhaps it’s due to its sincerity and the effect of presence, i.e. observing real life without interference (that was previously developed in documentary filmmaking). What can contemporary documentary filmmaking offer instead? Where is the boundary between professional and non-professional documentary filmmaking? Should documentaries acquire more artistic features (animation, imagery) to preserve its status of cinematographic art? Who watch documentaries today (are they created only for festivals)?

“How a deep understand of the stories of our past can help shape the Cinema of the future. It can often seem a daunting challenge to create and develop an original story which will capture and hold an audience’s attention. The temptation to recreate in new works the tropes which have worked in the past can often result in derivative films which lack the originality to satisfy audiences. But writers equipped with a deeper understanding of the elements which make stories connect with the collective consciousness of the audience greatly increase their chance of producing Cinema which can be both contemporary and timeless. The key to unlocking this creative potential for writers and filmmakers is developing a knowledge of Archetypes.”
