Short description In this day and age, it is important to know how to tell stories.

Creative Media Lab invites students to get hands-on experience and become acquainted with various contemporary media forms. In small teams, participants will use professional filmmaking equipment to create a documentary or other kind short film. The groups will be constantly guided by experienced professionals.

Students will also learn to apply the knowledge gained during the programme creatively, grasp the specifics of video production technology, and understand the usage of lighting in film. At the camp, students will get to act, operate the camera, and direct, which will give an understanding about filming and editing video material. In addition, everyone will be involved in analysing movies and study the art of rhetoric.
