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.

==Sunday March 31st==
  
Initially concern 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.

*Learn to use a bolex film camera!

*Learn how to hand process film

*Learn how to use a 16mm projector
  
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.

We will take a bolex to dolores park/wherever film some stuff and then come back to noise bridge and develop it.  If all goes well and the film is dry we will visit our neighbors, Artist Television Access, and project the film.
  
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. Concepts explored in the workshop include:
 
  
Starts Sunday August 26th and continues every 2nd and 4th Sunday

Hand Processing is back in 2013!!!!!!
  
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.

Elements of Image Making: Alternative Optics, Processes & Techniques

Sunday March 31st

4pm

  • Learn to use a bolex film camera!
  • Learn how to hand process film
  • Learn how to use a 16mm projector

We will take a bolex to dolores park/wherever film some stuff and then come back to noise bridge and develop it. If all goes well and the film is dry we will visit our neighbors, Artist Television Access, and project the film.


Hand Processing is back in 2013!!!!!!
