Audiovisual about photogravure

Audiovisual resource using 3D techniques

Centre for Image Research and Diffusion (CRDI)

A new audiovisual product will be presented in order to know the technical procedure of formation of the gravure on copper plate from the original technique of Talbot-Klic (1879). This audiovisual, created using 3D animation techniques, is the fifth proposal of a series dedicated to the evolution of the photographic technique and photomechanical procedures that started in 2007.The script is done by the teacher Carles Mitjà and the project execution is assumed by the CIFOG (Escola de Cicles Formatius de Girona). This audiovisual, unique in its presentation, has a clear dissemination function and, unlike the theoretical texts, allows the viewer to get a clear idea of this photomechanical procedure. It will be presented on October 27th coinciding with the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.
