May 10, 17: Panel discussion at the Hertie School of Governance

Rethinking the role of women in cultural and media professions: A European comparison

Despite mainstreaming efforts by the European Union and the Council of Europe, gender inequality persists for women in all areas of the economy. In the culture and media sector, the pay and pension gaps are even worse than in other fields. There is also a significant under-representation of women among the leading positions, in boardrooms, and as recipients of awards. While there is widespread consensus that raising awareness does help to dismantle the glass ceiling, which concrete measures are most effective? What can we learn from our European neighbours? The results of this discussion will contribute to a research project currently being conducted at the Hertie School’s Centre for Cultural Policy. [more]

Oct 22nd, 2015: Join the „Adaptation“ seminar by Suzanne Pradel (BuchScout Agency) at SAE Alumni Convention 2015

„The book was different“, is one of the things you often hear when leaving the cinema. But Novels and Film are very different mediums. If so, why undertake a film adaptation instead of producing an original screenplay?
What are the benefits of an adaptation, and what are the pitfalls to be avoided? What are the steps in the process, from choosing the right Novel, the acquisition of rights and negotiation of contracts, to the completion of the film?
Suzanne Pradel is the founder of BuchScout Agency which is your expert for novel to film adaptations. As international script consultancy we work in the development of ambitious/ sophisticated feature films for the national and international markets.

SAE Institute, the world’s largest creative media school with a presence in over 50 countries is bringing back its iconic alumni convention to Berlin, Germany.

Schulworkshop: Wie entsteht ein spannender Abenteuerfilm?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Diese Frage stand im Mittelpunkt des Schulworkshops im Januar 2013 in der 6. Klasse der Zille-Grundschule in Berlin-Friedrichshain.

Am Beispiel des Kinohits „Fünf Freunde“ (Regie: Mike Marzuk) unternahm Suzanne Pradel mit den Schülerinnen und Schülern eine spannende Reise in die Welt des Films. Vom Schreiben eines Drehbuchs über das Filmen am Set bis hin zum Schneiden des fertigen Films lernten die jungen Filmfans den gesamten Prozess der Filmherstellung kennen. Krönender Abschluss war die Vorführung des so entstandenen Films „Ein Stick – und die zersprungene Klasse“ auf dem Schuljahresabschlussfest und auf dem Filmfest des John-Lennon-Gymnasium im Kino Babylon Mitte.
