I don’t think the courses should be improved because everything is very well structured and all the relevant skills and knowledge are covered without wasting time on unnecessary discussion.

Actress Denisa Barvon has also graduated from the 2013 Workshops. She is a young emerging Romanian star. In 2013 she also won the contest “The Image of Brasov International Film Festival & Market” and she was featured on the Festival’s official poster which has subsequently appeared several times on a gigantic TV screen in Times Square, New York City. Today, she has been cast to play the leading role in the upcoming Bruno Pischiutta feature film titled THE BAD JOKE and she has signed an exclusive contract with the  Brasov Talent Agency.

1. What was your objective to attend the International Film Workshops organized by Brasov Film Center?

There was not only one objective, there were many objectives. The principal, the most important one, was to learn more about what film means, to know more, to achieve all I can achieve for working in the industry of film. Basically, to arrive to have the knowledge of an actress, to be ready, whenever an opportunity comes, to act.

2. How is the training helping you advance your career in films?

I think that if you know how to listen, how to follow the suggestions that were given in the time of the training in the Workshops, you can achieve everything in a film career.

Personally, the training helped me a lot because my knowledge about being an actress was very limited before. Then, after the knowledge part, is very important to know what you have to do, what steps you have to follow.

I graduated in the International Film Workshops, taught by director Bruno Pischiutta. They have helped me to learn what film making means. They have helped me because there was explained all that is needed to know to achieve a career in the film industry, from the technical part until the attitude that I should have as an actress on the set.

3.What are your suggestions to improve the training courses offered in these Workshops?

In my opinion, the Workshops that are offered are an exceptional opportunity for people that want to work in the film industry. Starting from young people like me who want to act, as I do, or people that are interested in writing screenplays or other many options, the Workshops are a real chance. In first place, the courses are free. Furthermore they are answering the questions that you can have about film making, and they give you a lot of knowledge. 

I personally don’t feel to give any suggestions for changes in the Workshops. All I have to say is: “Keep up the great and honorable work!”
The film workshops program trains the participants in different areas of film making. It is the aim of the Brasov Film Center to provide the attendees, when possible, with paid work on the sets of its film productions after they successfully complete the workshops.

In 2010, he became an actor at the Dramatic Theater ‘Sica Alexandrescu’, the town’s theater, and got to play on all the big stages in Brasov. He is an easy learner, talented man, who is in love with acting.

1. What was your objective to attend the International Film Workshops organized by Brasov Film Center?

My objective to attend the International Film Workshops organized by Brasov Film Center was in first place to develop myself as a person and actor, and secondly I wanted to learn more about the film industry. I and also wanted to meet people of the industry, people like Daria Trifu and Bruno Pischiutta. The International Film Workshops were the perfect place for this.

2. How is the training helping you advance your career in films?

Well, at the Workshops I met a lot of talented people.  From them I saw many styles of acting and I heard different opinions about what a film actor is and should do. These experiences helped me to improve a develop my own acting style. When the workshops were finished I kept in contact with Bruno and Daria, who became very dear friends of mine, and now, in this summer, I will have a role in their film THE BAD JOKE.

3. What are your suggestions to improve the training courses offered in these Workshops?

If I had to make a suggestion about improving the training courses, that would be just to extend the number of the sessions held. This is because if there would be more time, we would be able to learn and experience more interesting things. 

In addition to attending the workshops, the attendees can attend the screenings at the Brasov International Film Festival & Market (September 4 – 14, 2014) so that they have the opportunity to meet with local and international film and media executives.

Actress Andreea Dumitru

Actress Andreea Dumitru is a student in the German Theoretical High School ‘Johannes Honterus’ and the languages she speaks are Romanian, English, German and a little bit of Italian. She has graduated from the 2013 workshops. Andreea’s attitude is that of a champion; her priorities are to complete high school and to become a movie star. She is fortunate to being mentored by Bruno on her way to stardom. Andreea has also been cast in the feature film THE BAD JOKE.

1. What was your objective to attend the International Film Workshops organized by Brasov Film Center?

My objective in attending the International Film Workshop was to know more about the film industry and how it is like to be an actress. 

2. How is the training helping you advance your career in films?

The training was very helpful because I learned about new things such as how you should be on the set or what happens if the filmmakers figure out, after they almost complete the film, that a mistake has been done and how they would fix it. I was very sure that Bruno knows all about this; you can see from far away that he knows what he is doing and that he has a lot of experience.

3. What are your suggestions to improve the training courses offered in these Workshops?

I think the Workshops shouldn’t be changed because there is all we must know in a very short workshop. Maybe we could have more action, for example the cameraman could try some things with the camera, or the actors can play one short film. After that, they will be able to see their mistakes and fix them. In this way, after the Workshops they could play in a movie without having the fear of failures.

Film director Bruno Pischiutta is the principal conductor of the International Film Workshops. The deadline to apply is August 15. More information is available at the Brasov Film Center website.
