Sunday, June 6, 2-3:30pm
pay-what-you-can: free-$25

In this workshop you will learn how to take easily accessible items, household items, and 16mm film to make your own film art pieces. You will learn a variety of techniques from scratching, or bleaching 16mm film images, hand painting/drawing with nail polish or markers, and dye transfer from magazines with hot water and tape. These pieces can be abstract or meticulously animated using the items at your disposal. This can be a cathartic practice, or a tool of resistance and disruption to conventional narratives. By the end of the workshop, you will have the know-how to sustain your own 16mm filmmaking (camera-less) practice using materials you have right at home.
