Lectures

Character driven screenplay

by Eglė Vertelytė

For some time now, there has been a growing trend that films and series that have strong characters are somewhat more successful than those that focus more on story development. Therefore, this lecture will present a development plan for a short subway film, in which the story begins with the protagonist. We’ll talk about how to create a good character and a storyline that suits him; how the structure of the script relates to the evolution of the character.

Impact of sound and music in film: aspect of space

by Mantautas Krukauskas

New tools and technologies expanded possibilities of composers and sound designers to produce and implement their work more effectively within a given deadline. However, this also gives opportunity to shift from technological challenges towards artistic ones. This lecture focuses on exploration of sound and music in film centred around the aspect of space and describes techniques which lead towards effective artistic impact. Author will also demonstrate some models and experimentation in using relevant immersive sound architectonic principles for acoustic music composition and sound design.

2001: A Listen to Alex North’s Music

by David Bondelevitch

A comparison between Alex North’s original (unused) score for 2001 and the released version the film, which used pre-existing music from Classical composers.

* KTU brass band "The BrassBees" was founded in 2016 at Kaunas University of Technology. The band brings together students from a variety of specialties: from engineers to managers. Within a few years, the band members have not only brought together a circle of instrumental fans of wind music, but also been actively involved in concert activities. Music lovers at Kaunas, Birstonas, Ukmerge, Punsk cities as well as at Kaunas Jazz (Jazz Street 2017) and TauragėJazz2017 festivals were impressed with the energy and good mood of "The BrassBees" musicians. The band performs various genres, popular music pieces in street band style. Listeners are fascinated by mood, rhythm and energy!
