Learning outcomes This course unit is divided into three distintic areas of cinematographic creation: image, sound and editing. Each student will be able to choose an area to acquire knowledge. In the image 1) the student must be able to develop the technical lighting capacity; 2) Deepen the technical and aesthetic sense of light and shadow; 3) Plan and make decisions in a filming set. In sound, the student must be able to 1) Identify the different phases of the sound process of a film; 2) Be capable to do the sound capture; 3) Perform all stages of sound post-production. In editing it is intended that the student deepens knowledge of advanced techniques of cinematographic editing, and their integration in the post-production process. 1) Specialize technical knowledge using professional editing tools. 2) Analysis of the editor's work process, from choosing raw materials to final editing. 3) Develop the ability to make narrative and visual solutions.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria In the case of a laboratorial, the UC contemples practical exercises that will be privileged. In the image shift group exercises will be performed with each student playing a role, in the areas of sound and editing, as well as individual exercises. There will also be a joint exercise between the three areas, in which students will do a film exercise for up to 3 min.
The UC will have expository classes, but above all practical. In this way, it will be possible to improve the students' technical skills, and a better mastery of image, sound and editing equipment; The UC will allow the student to learn to work in the shooting context, and in post-production with materials from different areas of cinematographic production (image, sound and editing).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
