As we’ve been able to see the Film industry in the Dominican Republic is growing. The film career is only a year old in Chavón School of Design but they have made sure that well-known names in the industry come to campus and share their knowledge with the students helping them think out of the box and come up with innovative ideas that they can implement in their future projects. 

The workshop is orientated at audiotext, experimental sound, and dialog writing.  Stories, the fragments of dialogues,  messages in an answering machine, oral narration, in general, can be the beginning of the writing of a script. The genetics of the cinematographic text will be worked on from sound triggers. If you are into filmmaking or any of its branches, don’t miss the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the Latin film industry, spots are limited so call NOW you will not regret it!
