Costume Design, Class with Raúl Ramos

  1. Who is Raúl Ramos?
  2. Interview

Let’s get into it!

Who is our costume design teacher?

Raúl Ramos is a costume designer with extensive experience in Spanish and European films such as Teresa, the Body of Christ, or Garden of Eden.

Interview

What was the first class like at B.Movie and what did the students learn? – I hope it served them to understand how important costume design and art direction are within a film production, as all departments are linked in the same vision. Even if you want to be a director, director of photography, or art director, etc., all departments move together. The costume department not only dresses the actors, but they also have to get into the skin of each character, understand why they do things, and know where they come from and where they are going, in order to create a wardrobe that is not only suitable for each character but also evolves within the story we are telling, all within parameters dictated by the direction. Many people think that dressing a character is just that and do not understand that the psychology of the character within a story and how we can play with all of this when creating an entire imaginary world within our heads to make the vision of each production a reality. What was your experience of the live stream? – Being able to reach more people through the internet opens up many possibilities, especially for those who, due to their geographical location, do not have access to this type of talks, courses, etc. I think the internet is a fascinating tool for this, I remember when I was younger and there was no internet, you had to stick to the information that came to you without any other option, even in big cities there were many more ways to search for that information but it is true that thanks to these kinds of tools, we can say that “if someone doesn’t know, it’s because they don’t want to”.

What is streaming?

Streaming is a highly important tool for live transmission with a good standard of quality. In these times of pandemic, where new prevention and health safety measures are updated every moment and often condition us in our activities, streaming comes to overcome these difficulties, giving the possibility of attending and interacting live, but from home, in the classes of our school. This happened last Saturday at our film school, and we remind you that Raúl will be teaching a comprehensive and technical course in costume design starting January 2021, and you can already enroll to secure your spot. Don’t forget where to find us, for the school’s address click here, and if you want to enroll, register here. See you very soon with another super interesting post.

Summer courses at B.movie School

This year, at our film school, we have summer courses available in two modalities to ensure you don’t get bored at home and can choose the option that suits you best.

Summer is approaching, and we already have our schedule ready!

Join the audiovisual community in the role you prefer. This summer, you can enroll in:

Camera Acting to learn how to star in your own videos, those of your friends, or even in a professional job. We’ll provide you with acting tools through practical exercises so you can unleash your potential with any script in front of the camera.

Filmmaking to help you bring your own projects to life. You’ll learn how to translate a good idea into audiovisual language, mastering the key concepts and functions of each area: scriptwriting, production, direction, cinematography, art, costume, and sound.

Editing and Montage if you prefer to focus on post-production, the final step of audiovisual content creation. You’ll learn to use professional programs like Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects.

You can enroll in these summer courses on a biweekly or monthly basis.

Biweekly: first or second half of July or first half of August.

Monthly: throughout the month of July.

Sitcom pilot in the filmmaking course

FINAL PROJECT OF THE FILMMAKING COURSE STUDENTS AT OUR FILM SCHOOL

As the end of this course approaches, the students are ready to film their first sitcom.

During the last few weeks of the filmmaking course at Bmovie School film school, the students worked in three groups. Each of these groups had the arduous task of writing three scripts, respectively, for a first episode (or pilot episode) of a sitcom. After several weeks of research, corrections, and laughter, there are now three finalized scripts for a first episode of comedy.

What’s next?

Now it’s time to film! The final project consists of filming, with all the students together, one of these three scripts. To choose which one, we have set up a voting system where teachers and students have already made a decision, and very soon we will also know the decision of the public and our community on social media. If you want to know more about these scripts and, why not? vote for a favorite, you can do so on our Facebook or on our instagram-  Also, remember that this course is coming to an end, but registrations for the summer courses at the school are now open. Do you like cinema? Sign up here!

THE SITCOM AND OUR FILM COURSES!

Do you know about our film courses? Very soon we will start a new shoot with the filmmaking students, the course for young people at Bmovie School, the film school in Alicante. Last Friday, the public voting ended. Along with the votes from the students and the teachers, they chose a winner: “Alma Mater”. “Alma Mater” is the script from one of the three filmmaking groups, featuring a group of teenagers and their particularities, living their days and resolving conflicts in a foster home. Now the fun begins! Finalizing script details and kicking off the production of the first episode of this sitcom. Each of the students will take on a role within the audiovisual technical team and, with professionalism, fulfill the tasks of each area to ensure the necessary materials are ready for the shooting day. Shooting an episode of a series is the opportunity to learn how to work in the professional audiovisual world. It’s important to meet the established shooting times, understanding practically what each role entails, what their responsibilities are, and – considering all this – also learning how teamwork is organized. We are very excited about this project and we want to share it! If you love the world of cinema and want to join our courses, don’t forget that registrations are now open for the summer courses.

The summer course at Bmovie School has ended.

The students of Bmovie School have completed their intensive summer course! Both the filmmaking group and the on-camera acting group have already filmed their final projects. The kids had days full of shooting and hard work. Only the last part remains: the editing stage of all this material so we can enjoy the two summer 2021 audiovisual productions. The short film by the on-camera acting students (a story of teenagers, causes, and effects) was specially written for them, with particular importance given to the development of the characters each one wanted to portray. During all the sessions, they worked on each character’s profile, their dialogues, and their movements in front of the camera. It’s time to see the results!The pilot episode of the filmmaking sitcom (the story is better shown than told) was entirely written, planned, and produced by the students of the course. Each class day covered different areas to decide how to organize the production, dividing roles and rehearsing all the scenes to be ready for shooting. We are very close to premiering these projects, so stay tuned for updates from our film school in Alicante. And if you missed out during the summer, no problem! You can now enroll in the annual course at Bmovie School! Just click here, or you can visit us to get to know us and resolve all your doubts here. See you soon!
