In this two day workshop participants will learn all there is to know about how to work with the medium of Super 8. The course looks at cameras, how to hand process colour reversal film in E6 chemistry, and how to intervene in this process with light to create unusual and sometimes startling solarisations in full colour. We will also cover editing and projection, as well as how to draw and collage onto super 8 film (direct animation).
For a fuller understanding of what solarisation is please see: http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/imageservices/tag/solarisation/
We will use the new Agfa 200 ASA colour stock in Super 8 from Wittner in Germany.
You are encouraged to bring colour filters, gels or objects to film with / through (bottles, plastic bags, sheets, etc). Participants may wish to bring their own cameras although no.w.here has some basic models which will be available on the day.
DAY 1: 10:30 - 5:30pm
Day one starts with a contextual viewing of artists' Super 8 film works. We then move on to look at the Super 8 camera and format. This is followed by a shooting session with participants sharing a roll between two people. We end the day by seeing how the Lomo developing tank is loaded, with participants having a chance to try this themselves.
- Films will be loaded by James prior to Day 2 -
DAY 2: 10:30 - 5:30pm
All participants start with a demonstration of how the super 8 projector works, splicing, and techniques of working with Super cameraless film. This activity runs throughout the day in parallel with processing and solarising films in groups in the darkroom. As films dry participants can project them. Once all films are dried we will project these and the cameraless films made. The workshop ends with participants taking their films away with them.
