Hand Processing Black and White Film

NOTE: This workshop is in person. Following Ontario’s health guidelines, attendees will require proof of vaccination in order to attend this workshop.

Take your footage into the darkroom and process it yourself in this introduction to hand processing and darkroom practices. In this workshop, you will be shooting Super 8mm and 16mm black and white motion picture reversal film. This film stock is extremely versatile, allowing film to go from camera to projector, skipping the expensive stage of printing from negative. Gain control over your workflow in this one-day intensive, and take advantage of the provided darkroom time to process your footage. 

This workshop includes all film, darkroom chemistry, and supplies for use during the workshop. The Camera Theory workshop is recommended as a prerequisite. This workshop is recommended as a companion to the Organic Film Processing, Extreme Low Budget Analogue Filmmaking and Hand Processing Colour Film workshops.
