Film Friends: Series Continues December 16 with Karel Doing!

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16 @ 10 AM Los Angeles, 6 PM Oxford

FREE ONLINE EVENT!

Film Friends is a monthly series that brings established and emerging filmmakers together online for informal discussions on everything analog cinema. Series 1 features eco image-makers from around the world! Zoom in on December 16 — 10 AM LA time, 6 PM Oxford time — as we continue the series in conversation with filmmaker and phytogram originator Karel Doing. Free event! All welcome!

Karel Doing is an independent artist, filmmaker and researcher. In many of his works the rhythmical, painterly and performative qualities of the analog film medium are foregrounded. In 2013 he moved from the Netherlands to the UK to start a research project focused on cinema and ecology. This project has culminated in an ongoing engagement with plants and photochemical emulsion, investigating how culture and meaning are shared between the human and the vegetal realm. Doing’s work has been shown worldwide in micro-cinemas, on stage and in galleries. He has been giving workshops in experimental filmmaking techniques for 30 years, while focussing on plant based image making more recently.

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.
