Medrar Studio | ستوديو مدرار

 

To change and to resist, means today to create and to sustain spaces where other possibilities of being are imaginable. As the arts and culture scene becomes more and more monopolized by big budgets and mainstream agencies that import, commodify and replicate moving images, it becomes necessary within this context, to claim and maintain a space where experimentation and creation of moving images remain possible. We aim thus to contribute to this goal through our latest project: Medrar Studio. Medrar Studio strives to facilitate the processes of post production and showcasing of innovative and alternative moving images all while reimagining and questioning the ways in which we create these artworks. To produce different experiments in the moving image requires new work formats to be implemented and so we are invited to create and hold space where we can make, share and show, moving images that are not only independant, but alternative. To continue to produce and showcase alternative moving images therefore means for Medrar to give the space, tools, and knowledge for new voices to make films in more communal ways that are capable of creating their own audiences.


Medrar Studio is a space that invites independent filmmakers to reflect and innovate on the level of the cinematic form by supporting alternative storytelling. Medrar studio is a post-production suite equipped with high-end equipment offering premium and affordable post production services to independent filmmakers. Furthermore, it is a space that hosts roundtable discussions around contemporary storytelling discourses and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and learning experiences around ground breaking editing and coloring techniques.

أن تقوم بالمقاومة والتغيير يجب أن تخلق مساحات مستديمة تطرح احتمالات أخرى للوجود وبينما يُصبح المشهد الفني والثقافي مُحتَكَرًا من قِبَل الميزانيات الضخمة وجهات الإنتاج السائدة التي تَستورد وتُسَلعِن وتُعيد إنتاج الأفلام وأعمال الڤيديو، يُصبح ضروري في هذا السياق أن نملك ونصون مساحة يظل فيها التجريب بالصور وصناعتها أمرًا مُمكنًا. لذلك نأمل أن نساهم في تحقيق هذا الهدف عبر آخِر مشاريعنا: مدرار ستوديو. مدرار ستوديو يجاهد لتيسير عمليات ما بعد الإنتاج، وعرض الأفلام وأعمال الڤيديو المبتكرة والبديلة، بينما في نفس الوقت نُعيد تخيل طرق خلق هذه الأعمال الفنية ونُبحث فيها. إنتاج تجارب مختلفة بالصور المتحركة يتطلب تنفيذ صِيَغ عمل جديدة، ولذا فإننا مدعوون لخلق مساحة والتَمَسُّك بها، لنتمكن فيها من صناعة ومشاركة وعرض الصور المتحركة التي ليست مستقلة فحسب، بل بديلة. لذا، فإن استمرار إنتاج وعرض الصور البديلة يعني لمدرار توفير المساحة والأدوات والمعرفة للأصوات الجديدة، ليتمكنوا من صناعة أفلام بطرق جماعية وأكثر قدرة على خلق جماهيرها الخاصة.

مدرار ستوديو هي مساحة تدعو صناع الأفلام المستقلين للتأمل والابتكار على مستوى الشكل السينمائي عبر دعم طرق السرد البديلة. مدرار ستوديو هى غرفة مُجَهزَة بأحدث المُعدات لتقديم خدمات استثنائية لعمليات ما بعد الإنتاج بأسعار مناسبة لصُنَّاع الأفلام المستقلين. علاوة على ذلك، فهي مساحة تستضيف مناقشات حول خطابات السرد المعاصرة وتُيَسِّر تبادل المعرفة وخبرات التعلم حول تقنيات المونتاج والتلوين الرائدة.
