Jean-Louis Rodrigue was invited again to be an expert at the Berlinale Talent Campus #9. He will present a major component of the new intensified hands-on program, Talent Actors Stage.
Offering a range of training opportunities for actors, from acting technique, dialogue training, to casting and camera acting, it also provides interdisciplinary collaborations with other hands-on programs at the Campus to facilitate networking with directors, producers and screenwriters.
The Berlinale Talent Campus is an annual event that takes place parallel to the Berlin International Film Festival. The Campus and its participants benefit greatly from their proximity to the main festival centre and the European Film Market (EFM).
The 350 young students or graduates from film schools and/ or film professionals early in their careers are invited to learn from top experts through lectures, seminars and workshops, and have the opportunity to build international networks.
Besides Rodrigue, film experts this year included among many others Stephen Frears, Stephen Daldry, Alexandre Desplat, Mike Medavoy, and Hanna Schygulla. Dieter Kosslick, the Artistic Director of the Berlinale, confirms that “The Berlinale needs Talents just as cinema needs talent.
The correspondent motto of this year’s Berlinale Talent Campus is ‘Cinema Needs Talent: Looking for the Right People’. This motto refers to an extremely important moment in filmmaking: teaming up with the right people. The pleasure of being creative and the quality of its results are closely connected to the people you are surrounded by.”
