PETER HUMBLE & ROWENA CROWE | EXPERIMENTAL FILM TECHNIQUES
In this 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, specifically using DIY techniques to apply images directly to clear 16mm film. Participants will learn how to use a household black & white laser printer to create short image and sound works. They will also explore other methods of direct image making including the use of letraset transfer techniques, as well as drawing and scratching on the film to create specific effects.
For this workshop ideally bring a laptop with Photoshop installed, however there are options for students without laptop/photoshop. Please contact BSA to arrange this.
