Re-imagine La Traviata digitally

We will be running an additional strand of the Design Challenge with our partners in Brazil (as part of the British Council's ‘Scene Change’ project)

We will be running an additional strand of the Design Challenge with our partners in Brazil (as part of the British Council ‘Scene Change’ project), which will be the creation of a 5 minute film inspired by the music of La Traviata. We welcome your college to participate.

The brief is attached, and includes an insight into how creative teaching is delivered at the Rio de Janeiro training warehouse called 'Spectaculu'. We are envisaging you involving digital media, TV and film students from this September.

"La Traviata was intended as an Opera for the stage, but with the music as a soundscape what would a digital / film maker create from the narrative? We are challenging our students to create a 5min film based on one of the Director’s visions used in the main challenge that uncovers the Opera. It only needs to include part of the sound track, and may only cover part of the La Traviata synopsis”.

If you are interested and wish to participate in this additional strand, please ask tutors to directly e-mail us so we can communicate with them directly.
