Course: Hands-on-film: Process and Practise
20 February 2020 until 26 March 2020
Stills: Centre for Photography
- Saturday 14 March 11am – 2pm instead of Thursday, 12 March 6-9pm
This six-week course explores the unique aesthetic and tactile character of photochemical moving-image film. Employing a DIY, hands-on-approach, this course will celebrate the wonderful qualities of film and ask, ‘what are the aesthetic and political reasons artists’ continue to make work engaging these methodologies, in a climate of digital prevalence?’
Together, we will watch and discuss a number of groundbreaking films drawn from the historical canon of experimental cinema. Taking creative inspiration from this work, we will explore the beautiful tactile materiality of the analogue filmstrip through a series of practical activities and experiments. We will delve into artisanal, hands-on-techniques in order to shoot, hand-process and project the 8mm films we make.
Courses are open to all individuals aged 16 and over. We cannot accept bookings for participants under this age.
