Medicine is a life action art form that serves as an intensely rich playground for cinematic storytelling. Cinema, as a visual medium offers one of the best opportunities to better understand various health related conditions and their impact on us.
The story of life. The story of our lives and the story of us as human beings need to be told from the fresh insight of the health care providers (HCPs).
Filmmaking basics for doctors and HCPs is an introductory workshop where you’d get to learn the symptoms and signs of the dramatic arc in the story that needs to be properly diagnosed and portrayed in cinematic form, through learning the basics of film and visual storytelling.
