Using archival footage of North Bay over the decades, this weekend workshop will allow participants to remix the historical narratives that shape North Bay's part and present. Toronto based film artist Daniel McIntyre will help guide participants through experimentation and film editing processes to create new work that explores vintage footage of North Bay from the 20s to present. Participants can pull from an archive of National Film Board and web-based clips as well as bring in their own home movies. Laptops and software will be supplied, but participants are welcome to bring their own.


Participants will also have the opportunity to submit their finished loops/films for consideration in a special Media Lab screening on Canada Day weekend at the Discovery Museum!

Daniel McIntyre is an artist working primarily with film to create work about memory, identity and history. Through experimentation with hand processing and curation, his art practice is rooted in physical manipulation of materials to alter image creation. Working with aspects of radiation (Lion, Bikini), the destruction of memories (Goodbye, Happy), and the faceted image as viewed through a diamond (Famous Diamonds), his work involves a crucial connection between visual structure and subject matter. Since graduating from York University in 2009, he has been creating award-winning film work and exhibiting worldwide at venues including Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Cinematheque quebecoise, The British Film Institute, the Istanbul Modern, and the Museum of the Moving Image. In addition to serving on juries including Queer Lisboa, MIX Copenhagen, and Canada Council for the Arts, he has been curating moving image works with Pleasure Dome, Inside Out LGBT Film Festival, and the Images Festival. He is currently researching for Elder, an experimental documentary focusing on Vikings, genetic lineage and phenomenology to be completed as his MFA thesis.



This workshop is part of LIFT's Touring Filmmaking Workshops with media arts centers throughout Ontario. The touring program is generously supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF).
