These days, shooting on film is no longer an economic decision. Instead, it is an aesthetic choice that requires a special kind of discipline and methodology. Topics covered during this intensive workshop include: the various functions of super 8 cameras, types of film stocks, light meters and film labs for processing.
Over the course of the following week, participants will have 48 hours to shoot one roll of Super 8 film (3 minutes), using techniques of in-camera editing. During the last evening of the workshop, films shot by participants will be screened and discussed.
Goal: This workshop offers participants the chance to work with the unique medium of Super 8, while introducing them to the technical aspects of shooting on motion picture film.
*The cost of the workshop includes one cartridge of black and white Super 8 film and a 2-day rental of one Super 8 camera. Participants will have the option of hand processing their films in the workshop offered at Main Film the following week, or sending their cartridges to the lab. In both cases, all costs associated with processing are to be covered by participants.
