REFERENCE: 553676-EPP-1-2014-1-PT-EPPKA1-JMD-MOB_KEMTITLE: Kino Eyes, the European Movie Masters, KEMObjectiveKEM – Kino Eyes (the European Movie Masters) is a European joint master degree focusing on fiction film creativity. The program is designed as a training and research endeavour that has as its core objective to promote activities of an educational, research and artistic nature, which exploit all domains of fiction film creation and production in an original manner. Course durationTwo years (120 ECTS credits).Brief descriptionKEM is promoted by Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, School of Arts, Communication and Information Technologies (Portugal), Edinburgh Napier University, School of Arts and Creative Industries (United Kingdom) and Tallinn University, Baltic Film and Media School (Estonia). The course departs from the core areas of fiction film creativity and focuses on building skills for new career pathways and new opportunities to study the art and techniques of fiction filmmaking. The proposed curriculum and educational goals clearly balance the different technological aspects of filmmaking with the comprehension of the possibilities film offers as an art form. KEM’s main academic topic is film and moving image media. The programme particularly focuses on fiction film, either short or feature formats. The programme also deals with the broader competences of film literacy, namely the ability to critically understand the medium and its forms of expression and manipulate the associated language and technical features. Related academic topics are arts education and creativity. KEM’s curriculum integrates theoretical and practical oriented subjects, mostly based on a training trough projects in development methodology, amidst a mix of analytical, critical and experimental didactic approaches that will provide students with an in-depth knowledge of fiction film development while allowing them to explore their creativity and specialise in those aspects of fiction films that correspond to their personal preferences, artistic ambitions, and needed professional skills. KEM focuses on a pentagon shaped educational model covering five core skills: writing, directing, producing, technical execution (cinematography, editing, and sound) and creative programming, a transversal competence that includes parts of all others, and points to the need to integrate film literacy as a nuclear aspect of film education.KEM proposed structure follows the workflow of an actual film production and is aligned with the needs of todays’ professionals and organizations scattered along the film production and distribution value chain. Career prospectsKEM envisions educating creative professionals who fully comprehend all dimensions of film creation and possess the specialized skills necessary for a successful career in the highly competitive international market.An international experienceKEM students benefit both from geographical mobility by having the opportunity to circulate between the three countries involved in the program with international students in a highly collaborative environment. Students form collaborative teams and work towards a funded graduation project. Their final thesis films are expected to perform at first-tier international film festivals. Teaching on the programme is supplemented by a comprehensive course of professional practice preparation, involving industry professionals from all over Europe.DiplomaKEM will grant from the beginning a multiple degree and a attached diploma supplement based on the already existing and locally accredited master courses (second cycle degrees) in the area of fiction film offered by each one of the schools in the consortium, and will from its second edition onwards award a joint master degree with full accreditation and an associated diploma supplement.Website
