TITLES AND TRAVELING MATTES

LEARN TO CREATE TITLES AND TRAVELING MATTES ON 16MM FILM + PRESENT YOUR FILM AT OUR SCREENING PARTY

In this workshop participants will be introduced to a contemporary method of making titles and traveling mattes on Kodak's 7363 (Hi-Con).  We'll work as a group to shoot a roll of this film to better understand its possibilities to create the elements needed to; generate B/W titles, Color titles, and Traveling Mattes.  Curriculum will cover the basics of loading ESTAR film stocks into your camera, how to expose properly for a film-out, how traveling mattes can be applied to optical printing and in-camera matting.  We'll use the H16 Bolex Reflex camera, and prime lenses to shoot, various lab equipment along with a LOMO developing tank and an EIKI SSL-O projector!  We will go over key chemical reactions, how to mix our own B/W reversal chemistry. Additionally, each student will take home a 100’ roll of this film to shoot, process and experiment at a later date!  All chemicals and equipment will be provided.  In this workshop we will cover a lot of processes, and work collectively to create a well developed short film.  Finished projects will also be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party at Anthology Film Archives.
