Super 8 Filmmaking Intensive (Shooting and Processing): In Person

This hands-on workshop is a kick starter to get you going on experimenting with Super 8 filmmaking. Learn the various aspects of operating a Super 8 film camera, hand processing then projecting; taking advantage of the unique features of this format and  all-analog creation.

On the first day, with the guidance of your instructor, participants will learn the specifics of the Super 8 format and some camera techniques. Exposing using the various capabilities of the camera, we'll explore and shoot a group cartridge in both black & white and colour.

The second day, participants will be introduced to negative and reversal processing techniques. The group will process the black & white and colour cartridges of film. The day will be completed with a group screening and discussion. LIFT will copy the film to digital for sharing with participants. Beginners and experienced filmmakers alike will find this workshop informative and inspiring.
