Description

Do you think filmmaking is exclusively reserved for Hollywood big-shots? Or do you think documentary is just boring old TV shows?

Planet G(reece), the latest educational program designed by Exile Room targeting teenagers, is here to change your mind, proving that documentary is the ideal way to tell your story with whatever means you have at your disposal. At the same time, it will introduce participants to a vast array of exciting professions that are worth getting to know!

Planet G(reece) is a series of workshops with documentary at their core, targeting teenagers between 13 and 19 years old, both Greeks and immigrants, with the intention of encouraging intercultural collaboration and introducing them to a brand new world that could forever change their answer to the agonizing question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. Each workshop cycle will accept up to 25 participants and will focus on a different field, producing a different short documentary at the end. After the workshops have been completed, all films will be screened in a closing festival.

If you’re a teenager, a parent or an organization that works with teenagers, please check out the workshops below. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or registrations at 2103223395-6 (12-5pm) or workshops.exile@gmail.com. On Friday, December 20th, at 6pm, Exile Room will present the program to interested parties and NGOs. Registrations will be open throughout 2020.

Planet G(reece) will conclude with an online portal where all films will become available to the public, along with workshop manuals. This material can be used as an educational tool by educators, parents, schools and NGOs who want to recreate one or all of the workshops.

What is the best way to shoot reality? With your i-phone, a still camera, a handycam or does it take professional equipment? The answer is, all of the above! The best way to shoot reality depends on what allows you the most freedom of expression. We will teach you four ways to shoot reality and will lead the way towards a very creative short film, where each participant will explore the same subject from a different point of view.

Have you ever tried telling an entire story in pictures? In this workshop we will teach you photojournalism and visual storytelling, where your main medium will be still imagery.

Have you ever tried watching a horror film with the sound off? If not, this is probably a good time to tell you that it’s not scary at all! Does that mean that sound is what causes the strongest emotional reactions and not image? In this workshop, we turn documentary on its head. Participants, divided into four groups, will be asked to work with a piece of music associated with a different emotion: happiness, sadness, fear and something a little more abstract and harder to define.

Have you ever considered combining documentary and animation? It might sound strange, but there’s nothing more creative than imposing fantastical images on actual events, making the real world even more interesting or masking details you want to conceal – like someone’s identity.

It’s time to take climate change seriously! In this workshop, we’ll look in every corner of the city for revolutionary, eco-friendly solutions and people who have dedicated their lives to saving the planet. Are there any local businesses based on recycling? What can an entrepreneur do to limit his or her carbon footprint? Are there organizations in Greece working towards informing citizens about environmental issues?

Have you ever considered that, apart from a memorable image, a poster is also supposed to be a means of communication? Under the guidance of design studio Bend, which specializes in promoting cultural events, we will watch all the short docs that have been completed so far and draw inspiration for our very own posters, building bridges with the Planet G(reece) video output.
