International Media Support in Denmark & Danish-Arab Partnership Program
Sound designer Thomas Jaeger
The element of sound in filmmaking has immense potential in communicating information and conveying emotions. Danish sound designer, Thomas Jaeger, will partake in the 7th edition of Karama HRFF as a lecturer and mentor.
Two sound workshops will be conducted; one will be targeted at film students at the SAE institute and the other will be a lecture and discussion with Jordanian emerging filmmakers at the Royal Cultural Center.
The workshops aim to show the participants how to use sound creatively in the challenging context of documentary films where the stage is set and the reality is fixed. Thomas Jaeger’s strength lies in accentuating films through sound without taking away from the weight of the story, he will share his knowledge on how to to collaborate with the film director on this matter.
Thomas Jaeger has been telling stories with sound for 16 years and has worked on over 100 films including some of the most significant productions coming out of Denmark in recent years such as: Nymphomaniac (Lars von Trier), The Hunt (Thomas Vinterberg) and Democrats (Camilla Nielsson).
