This one-week course will focus on the techniques and theory through practice in the way we are using our creative thought to produce interesting stories and films. During the course of this seminar the participants will learn how to create interesting stories using Aristotle’s model of tragedy and how to create a script. In the second part of the workshop the participants will begin to create their own projects (fiction, documentary or experimental) and will learn the way to use their mobile phones in order to create high quality footage. In the last part of the workshop the participants will edit their films and present their work.
The aim of this hands-on course is for the participants to learn how to create interesting and technically sufficient films with their mobile phones. Also, the participants will learn how to use this knowledge in order to use it as a tool in their teaching activities or in their professional workspace. Skills like scriptwriting, filming and editing are tools that are extremely useful today regardless the discipline of your profession.

Athens. The city with the most glorious history in the world, a city worshipped by gods and people, a magical city. The enchanting capital of Greece has always been a birthplace for civilization. It is the city where democracy was born and most of the wise men of ancient times. The most important civilization of ancient world flourished in Athens and relives through some of the world’s most formidable edifices.
Who hasn’t heard of the Acropolis of Athens? Photos and history of the most famous archaeological monument in Europe is admired by thousands of people. Acropolis is nominated to be one of the 7 wonders of modern world. In fact the trademark of Athens is one of the favorites. The Holy Rock of Acropolis dates back to the 5th BC, the famous Golden Age of Periklis. Athens met times of bloom and decline, but still shines under the Attic sky gazing the future. Still sparkling like the marbles of Parthenon and the limpid white of Pentelic marble.
