Oh, ez! Zu berriz ere! Pertsonaien sorkuntza lantegia = ¡Oh, no! ¡Otra vez tú! Taller de creación de personajes = Oh, no! It's you Again! Character Creation Workshop
Are you tired of female movie characters screaming all the time or messing things up? Are you unsatisfied with them? Do you even know what a female character is? Never fear, come join Oh No! It’s You Again!, a character creation workshop.
Alba Feito brings us a theoretical and practical workshop which takes a critical look at a wide variety of the most interesting female characters from mainstream fantasy and horror film. We’ll discover the typical features of these movie roles from early film through to the present day, looking at the most recognisable aspects of these characters such as sexualisation of the body, victimhood and weakness. Why use drawing as our tool? It’s a very useful method of directly creating a new image (you don’t need to be an expert!). We’ll start with symbolic representations, later putting together our own female characters by playing with the possibilities that arise from amongst all the workshop participants.
This activity is part of the programme War of Fanzines 2017, organised by the San Sebastian Horror Festival, in collaboration with the Desktop Publishing Corner at Ubik, Tabakalera Creation Library, and FNAC.
