Workshop Registration

Cameraless Filmmaking: Laser Printing on 16mm Film: In Person

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

In this two-day workshop, we will explore in depth the process of printing image and sound on 16mm film using a simple black-and-white laser printer.  Participants will make a series of short (10-second) loops as we work through increasing levels of complexity from using simple textural patterns to working from video footage and doing frame-accurate registration.  The workshop will conclude with a multiple-projector performance of the loops generated by the participants, where we investigate how these short loops can be built into larger symphonic structures using a battery of 16mm projectors.

This workshop includes all equipment and supplies to be used during the workshop

Instructor: Roger Beebe

Roger Beebe is a filmmaker whose work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple-projector performances and essayistic videos that explore the world of found images and the "found" landscapes of late capitalism. He has screened his films around the globe at such unlikely venues as the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square and McMurdo Station in Antarctica as well as more likely ones including Sundance and the Museum of Modern Art with solo shows at Anthology Film Archives, The Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City, and Los Angeles Filmforum among many other venues. Beebe is also a film programmer: he ran Flicker, a festival of small-gauge film in Chapel Hill, NC, from 1997-2000 and was the founder and Artistic Director of FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film Festival from 2004-2014. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Art at the Ohio State University.
