The Bolex is LIFT’s smallest, lightest and most affordable 16mm/S16mm camera. The Bolex provides a great introduction to shooting on film, offering simplicity for beginner filmmakers and more advanced features for the experienced camera user. With the spring wind there are no batteries involved for basic operation, but optional motors, intervalometer, and matte boxes make everything possible. The iconic camera for experimental and independent film, the Bolex is an imaging powerhouse. During this class you will also shoot a short test to view after it returns from the lab. Gain a solid foundation in the operation of this versatile camera in this hands-on workshop.

The Camera Theory workshop or equivalent experience is required as a prerequisite to this workshop.
