Some interest has been building around a workshop concerning hand
processing and darkroom processes for Motion Picture film. So, we are
gonna have a get together/discussion in/around the darkroom this coming
Sunday Nov. 4th. We will be discussing the film stock called Hi-Con(7363),
which is an orthochromatic high contrast film usually reserved for making
titles and mattes for special effects. When processed in d-76 or diluted
dektol, it yields a niece medium contrast film stock, this combined with
the fact that it is dirt cheap ($40 for 400ft) makes it an ideal choice for
use in the darkroom or for anyone who wants to shoot 16mm and doesnt want
to go broke.
I will bring some technical info, introduce the basic processes for
negative and reversal development of 16mm black and white camera stocks,
and then hopefully in groups of 2-3 we can develop some film! I will bring
my Bolex for us to generate some images, additionally i will bring some
already exposed film, and we can always make photo-grams! This is also a
good opportunity if anyone wants a chance to get familiar with a bolex.
I hope to see some of you there. Let me know if you have any
If anyone is planning to use the darkroom Sunday afternoon/evening please
let me know so we can schedule around your needs. We will only need the
actual darkroom for about 40-60 minutes, ideally starting at 5pm. Outside
of the darkroom we will be talking around a table somewhere.
