Interested candidates in SIC should submit their application before the 6th of March 2009. The SIC team will review the applications and then invite finalists to interview. Each year SIC selects a maximum of 10 participants. SIC is especially interested in project proposals that reflect upon the intercultural encounter and reveal a genuine and personal relation to the subject.
SIC is in the first place open to people with experience in the arts and/or social sciences. Generally SIC prefers candidates who posses a Master degree. If you haven’t had artistic training, we ask you to emphasize which media you hope to use and why. If you don’t have a Master degree, we request a portfolio of your best work in the visual arts.
The selection is based on an audiovisual project proposal (film, video installation, sound creation,…) submitted by the candidate which contains following paragraphs:
What is the subject of your project and why do you want to make it?
What’s the relation between the author and his or her subject/”other”: what is the type of interaction between author and subject and how can this relation be specified? Is there a viewer involved, prefigured, abstract or concrete?
What is your formal approach, what is the relation between your subject and the form you choose?SoundImageCulture / SIC is a group of artist-anthropologists committed to artful storytelling through real human encounters that challenge documentary conventions, opening up to sound and image based installations. SIC offers a nine-month master class to assist professional filmmakers, social scientists and artists in the realization of their personal project. The course involves a broad spectrum of theoretical perspectives and practical workshops so as to link formal and ethical questions during the production process as each creator develops their original, personal point of view.
