Learn & create together
PLAY * EXPLORE * INTERACT
We accompany individuals within their learning process, while constantly learning from them in a dialectic pedagogic path with methods that combine theory & practice and encourage personal growth.
* Photography * Participatory Video *
the Opposite of competing is sharing
The workshops encourage creative thinking, by enabling and facilitating you to “express yourself” creatively, so that your personal voice is heard.
They offer new ways of learning to look, observe and examine in order to compose artful images, which add value to the representation of our inner world and furthermore of the world that surrounds us.
One of the common results of the workshops is not only to upgrade our relationship with the medium used each time, but also to enrich our own perception for ourselves and reality.
WHAT THEY SAY
* Siegfried 10-years-old, Iguana Institute:
I liked a lot the workshop, I learned to take photographs, have a steady hand and a lot of patience, while we found out with my colleagues that ideas are not copied but rather one can be inspired by the ideas of others.
*Ana Vercoutere / Director of Iguana Institute
‘I feel very grateful to collaborate with DESfilms in the workshop with the youth of Mazunte as they created their own criteria of how to cultivate their art of looking. Despina shared her knowledge with passion and enthusiasm creating a loving & nurturing environment that offered immediate results as the kids expressed themselves and their emotions with the cameras in a short time, capturing the beauty all around and within them’
*Christian Vogt, 50-years-old entrepreneur/Tailored Made Workshops for adults (Camera & Filming Basics)
I am very happy with the 3-week workshop I participated in with DESfilms, wanting to be knowledgable with the practical side of cinematography as I was then co-producer of a film project. Despina’s friendly way made the course exactly what I needed, a hands-on no frills exercise, combining conceptual thought with plenty of practical elements. Thank you Despina.
*Keti Haliori/Director of “Ask the flask” online workshop
Working with DESfilms and her vast network guaranteed the success of “Ask the Flask”, a challenging project of particular experimental nature. Between us there was impeccable understanding and coordination. Despina was a very pleasant project manager as she has tools for intelligent data management, control over organisation, supervision and processing while communicating with colleagues and the team. At the same time, smiling, giving optimism and certainty in every challenge we faced along our journey.
