“Labour in a Single Shot” Workshop for Film-Makers and Video Artists

“Labour in a Single Shot” Workshop for Film-Makers and Video Artists

The task at hand is to present the topic of labour by means of a single video sequence; in other words, you will produce videos consisting of only one shot, no cuts are allowed. The topic is work: paid, unpaid, material or immaterial, traditional or entirely new work.

This assignment formally introduces the foundations of filming, as you need to find out: When can we find a beginning and an end even if a repetitive process is being shown? Should the camera be moved or stand still? What is the best way to capture the choreography of a work process in a single shot? Early films told us: Every detail of the mobile world is worth being documented and considered. And they had a fixed point of view, whereas today’s documentary film only too often presents sequence upon sequence because it is undecided.


  • A maximum of 20 video artists or filmmakers will be selected from all applicants to participate in the workshop. All age groups are welcome – independent film makers, professors dedicated to documentary film making, and alumni are also invited to apply. Selection criteria are: creativity in film-making, ideas, engagement, and outstanding film results.
