- a two day seminar about the sound of Nordic documentaries, Saturday March 17. – Sunday 18.

Christina Rosendahl

Presenting; Svenn Jakobsen, Uno Helmersson, Rasmus Winther Jensen, Tim Hinman, Phie Ambo & Christina Rosendahl

Adressing; Sound designers, composers, editors, directors and producers

Nordic documentaries are incredibly respected around the world, not least because of a very imaginative and atmospheric way of telling stories. Often sound and music are used in very creative ways and we have invited a handful of Nordic sound creators to talk about their distinctive work, both on film and in podcasts, and how to explore the sonic potential in documentaries.

Since it is a Nordic seminar, we would like to invite all participants to stay for dinner Saturday evening, to meet and mingle with colleagues from 18.00-22.00. We have asked the kitchen to fire up the barbeque and serve a nice dinner, which can be purchased for additional 175, - DKR. Due to the kitchens preparation of the dinner, we kindly ask you to write it in the motivation field when you sign in, if you want to participate in the dinner as well.

We chose to held the seminar at the same time as CPH:DOX. They have kindly offered to make a special offer for participants in the seminar. They will offer a “package of film” curated from a “sound” point of view. More information will follow.

The seminar takes place on the National Film School of Denmark, Theodor Christensens Plads 1, 1437 Copenhagen K.
Saturday March 17. & Sunday 18.from 10.00 – 18.00.

Participant fee is Dkr. 1.295,- incl. coffee/tee/water and lunch both days.
