"Shotlist: credits. An impression of the daily events at the Art School. The building is heated and cleaned, students and staff arrive and the mail is collected. Classes begin and library books are studied. The morning break. Classes continue. Lunchtime. The afternoon's work, cleaning up at the end of the day, lights go out and everyone goes home."
