Week-end of the 25/26thJanuary 2014/Cambridge, maximum of 6 participants
Starts at 10:00 am to 5pm both days
This include one cartridge of Tri-X Super 8 film (runs 3 minutes), development chemistry, loan of camera, and telecine transfer to DVD
● Join us in a two-day DIY workshop in which you learn the basics of using a Super 8 movie camera, see some monochrome masterpieces from our worldwide archive to inspire you, devise a shooting plan, then take the leap of irrevocably filling those 3500 tiny frames with rich monochrome Kodak magic. We loan the camera, you provide the imagination!
● The next day, we’ll hit the darkroom – a real one. Using a special spiral (a challenge in itself!), each film is loaded into a developing tank to be soused with chemistry, stopwatch in hand, washed, unrolled and hung up to dry, as you see your efforts appear in full effect like a hatching dragonfly.
● Each film will be run through a vintage projector to shine your unique and permanent image on a screen for the first time. Later you’ll get a positive-image telecine digital file to edit as you please - plus your original 50’ of unique film to last for… 50 years? 100 years? Longer than your digital media will ever survive? Something for your grandchildren, as the legacy of real film already is in our own time?
