On February 19, the Shaken Film Club hosted a meeting with Vladimir Tyulkin, director of documentary films, winner of international film festivals.
Vladimir Viktorovich talked with students on the topic “The role of intuition in creating an artistic image in the documentary “Lord of the Flies”.
Vladimir Tyulkin shot this film in 1990, but even today it remains relevant.
This phantasmagorical film about a man who wanted to destroy all the flies in the world, received a resounding festival success and was included in the list of the 50 best films of the twentieth century according to Russian film critics.
At the meeting, the students asked the director questions about the script in the documentary, about the choice of the hero, about directing techniques and music in the film. But perhaps the most important message from Vladimir Tyulkin to aspiring filmmakers was the following: “To be a director, you need to cultivate a personality.”
Finally, Vladimir Viktorovich read the poems of A. Blok and once again emphasized the red line of the theme of the meeting – the duality of the world

On 6.02.2024 within the of celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Faculty of “Cinema and TV” on the platform of the cinema club “Shaken” a special show of works of the Academy students – directors and cameramen was held.
The screening was held in collaboration with the Department of History and Theory of Cinema and their students. The screening was followed by heated discussions and constructive criticism, which the young filmmakers accepted with due respect for their future colleagues. Judging by the full house that lasted throughout the screening, we can assume that the films were really interesting to all the audience present in the hall.
In conclusion, I would like to wish all students success in their creative endeavors and more talented works

Recently, another academic meeting was held with the creative team of the ARA studio, the authors of the acclaimed animated film “Shyrak”.
