An introduction to 16mm film techniques, students will shoot, process and edit analog 16mm film, as well as digitally transfer film to video. Through screenings, experiments and hands-on workshops students will learn about cinematography and the photochemical process. Taking advantage of the special tactile, tangible nature of the analog film, material properties will be explored- direct tactile methods such as paint/scratch on film and laser etching. All films will be dialogue-free- adding sound through double-system recording and performance will be explored.
-Learn the technical skills to operate motion picture 16mm cameras, including light meters and lenses, as well as 16mm projection.
-Learn and experiment with a variety of techniques for material 16mm filmmaking- direct scratch on film, in-camera printing, and laser etching.
-Learn photochemical processing techniques- both straightforward chemical kits and alternative processes.
-To be able to locate these creative processes (and your own) in a larger context of experimental analog filmmaking.
