In this presentation, participants will get a demo from Clyde Shaffer on how to build their own linear processing machine based on Clyde’s open source design, the SLP (Shaffer Linear Processor). Each participant will get a copy of the book “Your Film and the Lab” and a copy of companion guide-DIY Zine including instructions on how to build your own, at-home processor for less than $300. The SLP (Shaffer Linear Processor) can be constructed from parts obtained at local hardware stores, on Amazon and 3-D printed elements that are available for download on Thingiverse. By attending this presentation participants will gain a greater understanding of linear processing and hands on experience building their own processing machine with step-by-step instruction. Clyde gave this presentation at the Estudios Churubusco in Mexico City last year at an International Artist-run lab meeting with LEC Laboratorio Experimental de Cine. This summer you will leave this workshop with the knowledge of how to build the SLP and, essentially, start your own film lab at home! The design is modular and can accommodate most chemical processes!
