Characteristics of the course of study

The course aims to ensure a decisive strengthening in the use of technological and conceptual tools for the images creation for the theatre, cinema and TV, scenic space management, as well as the setting of events and live performances. There will be, in particular, a significant enhancement in the digital technology area and of set designing for the television and the cinema. Moreover, an in depth study of scenic costumes is also planned, thus giving a complete preparation of all aspects of the image related to the show business. The strict application of the method acquired in Level I on the familiarity with the practice of set designing, will allow an aware opening in the fields of television production, cinema and special effects, as well as the management of animation that can be applied to different forms of entertainment (from the rock concert, to the television studio, to managing big public events). The composition set labs, will allow a wide possibility to deepen study and to get more specialized in the different costumes and set design ambits and on the contemporary performative and artistic experimentation. The other subjects will enforce new competences in digital modelling and rendering, as well as technology and video graphics for the show.
