Experimenting with Super 8: In PersonNOTE: This workshop is in person. It is recommended that participants wear a mask while on the premises.
In this workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of techniques through which a favoured medium of experimental filmmaking, Super 8, can be expanded upon to new creative ends. The workshop will begin with a demonstration of Super 8 camera basics and special features. Participants will then practice shooting on Super 8. After the film has been shot we will be collectively exploring a range of experimental processing techniques such as tinting, toning, finishing the workshop with on-film editing.
Previous experience with Super 8 not required.
