Elements of Image Making: Alternative Optics, Processes & Techniques

November 4th, Sunday 4pm! We returning better then ever, and kicking off our new form with a workshop on Hand Processing!!!!!!!!!!!

Description

Elements of Image Making is a series of workshops investigating analogue film processes, structured around the open exchange of ideas, resources, and skills while focusing on teaching through facilitation.

Topics covered range from manipulations of found footage to new image generation using chemical, optical, and mechanical techniques. Our primary concern being the surface of film, we will treat it as a canvas. We will create and watch 16mm and super 8 films.

Initially concerned with tactile manipulations, we will make direct animations by drawing, scratching, and painting directly onto film. By focusing on texture, pattern, and rhythm we will explore projected light, experience and perception. Future workshops will move into the darkroom exploring: photograms, hand processing, handmade emulsions and tinting/toning.

Additionally we will invoke whatever mischief we can think of; we might bury film, throw it into a volcano, launch it into the atmosphere, bake it, burn it or sail it to angel island.

Prior film knowledge is not required but attendees with previous experience are encouraged to contribute their knowledge and experience at any level they feel comfortable with.

Every 4th Sunday

Participants are encouraged to bring any materials they think would be interesting to work with, including any aged film material or stock, but especially markers, paint, stamps, translucent objects or scratching elements, anything that may hold an interesting presence on film. All editing materials, projectors, and tools necessary will be provided.
