Those interested can register on the portals: https://acortar.link/Qd910B, where there are also the contents to be addressed, the description of the cycle and the teaching team.
They are taught 100% online, accessing the contents in an intuitive virtual classroom, which allows connecting at any time, entering from any computer and / or mobile device, and accessing different spaces for exchange, support and attractive methodologies for the learning.
The first begins its third edition and will oversee teachers and specialists Octavio Nadal, director of the Aura Films production company, and Fabio Prepelitchi, director of Murga Productora Creativa. Aimed at audiovisual producers and filmmakers for all platforms, students and executives in the industry, it highlights general knowledge of the distribution business and content marketing; new business models, context and trends, new display windows and strategies that allow better monetization of content.
Nadal says that “In this unstoppable process of globalization and convergence, precipitated by the changes of the pandemic, audiovisual production must be urgently reconfigured. And this process requires professionals with a broad profile. Reformulate and reconsider or disappear, that is the challenge ”.
Prepelitchi adds: “This year’s diploma seeks to understand this new configuration of the global market and its rules of the game, so that independent producers can take advantage of the wave of investments, adapting to their needs.”
The second Diploma trains students with a comprehensive vision of the audiovisual business, more precisely from the conception of an idea. It proposes to train advanced students and professionals in the sector, from a complete conception of the audiovisual development process, underpinning processes of market analysis, pitching, presentation models and rights.
Development is, without a doubt, one of the most sensitive stages in production design, and one of the areas with the greatest interference in the final result of a project, relating knowledge of both the market and the narrative, creativity and its realization. .
Aimed at producers and creatives in the sector who want to improve themselves by incorporating strategies and project management, it has an important list of teachers: Hernán Musaluppi from Rizoma Producciones (Argentina), Giancarlos Nasi from Rampante Films (Chile), Silvana D’Angelo from Glowstar Media (Argentina), Clarisa Navas from Yagua Pirú Cine (Argentina), Pablo Mazzola from 3C Films and Impacto Cine (Argentina), Manuel García from Cine Tren (Argentina), Vanessa Ragone, showrunner and president of CAIC.
“The module focuses on the importance of training in the criteria of search, selection and development of ideas in order to specify competitive television or film projects in the market”, summarized Musaluppi. And D’Angelo highlighted: “In this context of permanent transformation, it is necessary to understand the current ecosystem, strategies in the presentation and commercialization of content, as well as new business models.”
Navas completed: “This diploma is going to focus on the different paths that can be traced for a film project, taking into account regional and international funds and also laboratories, but from a critical and conscientious perspective that allows understanding a broader context in which the works are inscribed in these times ”.
One of the main mentors and promoters of these courses has been the recently deceased Paola Suárez, who served as academic coordinator together with Mariano Joaquín García (APAC). In the case of “Project Development and Management”, the team is completed by Ayelén Ferrini (UNC) and Linda Díaz (APAC).
“Ongoing training is crucial to address current challenges. With the diplomas we try to bring training options that address the entire chain and from different perspectives. With the presence of prominent professionals who actively participate in the industry and its trends, we offer learning spaces that allow us to share experiences and promote different work models”, concluded García.
