4 all-day sessions, 3-day camera rental, private editing sessions, lab-access & screening party


In this new workshop offering, participants will learn the contemporary workflow for shooting, processing, editing, titling, contact printing, and projecting on 16mm from start to finish.  We'll begin by reviewing the camera basics (exposure, lenses, how to load, focus, run, maintain and operate the camera), and discuss current options and manufacturers of B/W negative camera stocks.  Then, you will schedule a 3-day rental and be given 200ft of B/W negative reversal film stock of your choice (ORWO UN54 (100 ASA) or N74 (400 ASA)).   After your shoot, in the following session, you'll learn how to contact print and process your own work print to edit on the flatbed editing table.   You'll shoot titles in an all-day workshop and conform a single strand internegative from the work print.  From this you'll strike a contact print (a positive projectable print) that you'll have processed yourself.  Most excitingly, you'll complete the workshop with the knowledge and skill set to make additional copies of your film using your internegative!  Edition your work on film!  We will also discuss how to promote your short piece through a list of friendly film festivals. All materials will be provided for. Finished projects will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party.
