Event description

Description

Jean-François Cornu, influential AVT historian and practitioner, will lead a discussion on the topic of innovation in subtitling. The masterclass will run for approximately one hour, followed by another hour dedicated to a hands-on group activity. During the first part of the session, Jean-François will go through the major practical and artistic innovations in subtitling throughout the history of talking film until today. He will also deal with the latest trends in working processes, looking at the concept of “innovation” from a critical standpoint, and at these processes as regressive rather than innovative. In the second part of the session, Jean-François will present specific examples and cases for discussion. Attendees will be expected to participate actively in the discussion individually and in small groups.

The event is free and open to all interested parties. Students and researchers intending to participate to our London workshops in May are warmly invited to come along to this introductory session. Refreshments will be served between the class and the hands-on activity to allow for networking.
