EPFC FALL 16 YOUTH CLASS: “LOS ANGELES 2019”

The opening title card of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner reads Los Angeles, November 2019. The film then proceeds to establish the dystopic, dark industrial sprawl of LA. This Fall, the Echo Park Film Center will hold a semester long youth class that explores the future. What does the future look like? What styles, subcultures, films and music will emerge? What will our city look like? The participants of this class will explore futurist thinking by experimentation of sounds and visuals. Throughout the class we will cover experimental techniques of making electronic music as well as creating abstract video and media art. We will study classic science fiction films and literature to excavate the social themes of those times and contemplate what today’s Sci-fi looks like. The class will culminate in a screening of the students final projects… An experimental video art piece with their own music score!

EPFC youth classes are FREE and all materials are covered by the film center.

This class is open to youth age 12-19 will meet weekly on Wednesdays 4:30-6:30PM from September 14 to December 14, 2016. There is a mandatory orientation on Tuesday September 13 at 6pm at EPFC. The final screening will be on Sunday December 11 at a location to be announced.

Bookings are closed for this event.

VIDEO_WAAAVES: Open-Source Video Synthesizer Tools

Join Andrei Jay on an introductory exploration into the intersections of video synthesis and chaos theory using their Video_Waaaves software suite! At the end of this workshop you will have learned the fundamentals of working with real time video feedback, video mixing, and video synthesis systems in general, along with gaining an intuitional knowledge of nonlinear dynamical systems without having to even glance at a single differential equation! No technical experience in mathematics, coding, or video worlds is necessary, just a desire to learn and some kind of a computer built in the last 12 or so years (osx and windows only for this workshop, chromebooks, ipads, and linux are beyond the scope of this course).

Unix for Artists: Fun with FFMPEG

The organizing principle behind the "Unix philosophy" is to take small, singularly-focused applications and use them in concert to create complex, powerful problem-solving tools. In this workshop we will explore FFMPEG and other free, open-source applications as building blocks for making and manipulating video art. Through demonstrations with practical examples participants can try at home we will explore FFMPEG's features for transcoding, resizing, editing, applying effects and more. Using it in conjunction with ImageMagick, Processing, Youtube-dl and more, we demonstrate how this powerful application can be a part of your personal art practice whether you are an animator, editor, programmer or just having fun on the computer.
