Cool Alchemy: Blue Toning for Black and White Motion Picture Film

Saturday, September 21:  1 – 6 PM

Feeling blue? Join the party! Using both found footage and film shot and developed in class, this workshop will look at turning black and white super 8 and 16mm film into tones that range from blue to purple.  Participants are encouraged to bring samples of household cleaning products such as dishwashing soap, laundry detergent or even shampoo to explore alternative and unpredictable methods of film toning. This workshop is open to filmmakers of all levels and experience.  All materials (except for soap) are provided.

FREE WORKSHOP! In this workshop, we will experiment with analog film shooting and projection as a medium of visual poetry: We will make film loops and strips with letters, words and other signs, project them simultaneously and construct simple poetry machines though asynchronous looping. Participants can take these experiments where they want: for generative poetry, performative screenings and readings, visual poetry slams and rapping. The film material will be shot, developed and projected on the spot.
