PETER HUMBLE & ROWENA CROWE | EXPERIMENTAL FILM TECHNIQUES
In this two day intensive weekend workshop, artist, animator and film editor Rowena Crowe, and Peter Humble from Sydney’s Workshop for Potential Cinema will walk participants through a number of their techniques in analogue film making, including processing with caffenol (for the uninitiated this means DIY film making thanks to the joy of coffee!), printing onto 16mm film, plus projector and optical sound experimentations.
In Saturday’s workshop, participants will explore the technique of processing black-and-white film with easily found household agents: instant coffee, washing power and vitamin C. During the workshop students will shoot their own photos (students without a still film camera can loan one), mix the caffenol developer, and process negatives. A scan of the negatives will be made for participants to take home. This is an excellent introduction to shooting and developing black-and-white film at home.
In Sunday’s workshop participants will explore direct 16mm techniques including using a laser printer to work directly onto the 16mm surface, as well as Letraset transfer techniques to make both images and sound. For this workshop ideally bring a laptop with Photoshop installed.
