Learning activities and methodology
In the development of the subject, as a complementary activity for the training of students, a tour of Madrid is made to establish the traces that in the capital are of film or television activity. Previously, study documents from the website of the Tecmerin group (tecmerin.es) are used in class, and after the tour, an evaluation and discussion of what has been seen is done. The tutoring regime is planned to solve the doubts of the students in the development of the subject during 2h a week.
