Learn the art and craft of hand-making Super-8mm films on B/W reversal film!  This will be a hands-on class designed for the beginner that covers all aspects of Super-8mm filmmaking: cameras, angle, story, exposure, lighting, editing, and projection. Students will conceive, shoot and edit their own silent one-reel films.
