16mm Workshop: Filming, Processing and Screening

16 August 2016 until 18 August 2016

Book now

We are delighted to be hosting this three day, intensive, residential workshop with artist Mat Fleming between 16 and 18 August 2016.

The course gives an insight into using 16mm film cameras, planning for filming and then hand processing the film. There’s opportunity to film both inside the house and around the gardens and surrounding landscape, as well as trying out some lighting and in-camera effects. Using a small attic darkroom at Hospitalfield and recipes combining household products with photographic chemicals, the films will be processed and fixed ready to edit and then screen. The group will edit the films and work on the sound track. During the course we will also screen examples of 16mm films made by artists and filmmakers and discuss the practical and conceptual approaches to screening 16mm film.

The workshop caters for a small group of participants so that you each get to know all aspects of the processes and have lots of chances to ask questions. If you have previous knowledge of other photographic or filmmaking techniques then this will be useful to you in learning about 16mm but you don’t need any experience to be able to do the course.

This workshop costs £275 which includes the course content and tutoring, accommodation and all meals. There’s an additional charge for film.
