EXPERIMENT WITH FILM
CONSTRUCT A SCREENING SPACE
2 & 3 SEPTEMBER 2017
Led by artist Katie Schwab
Join us on this two-day workshop, aimed at age 11-18, to explore and experiment with different ways of making and viewing moving images.
Using films by Len Lye and Charles and Ray Eames as starting points, we will look at different kinds of narrative and filming. We will draw, sew or scratch directly onto 16mm film, and then construct our own viewing space/cinema to screen the resulting our film in.
DAY 1 will include: exploring abstract narratives / making and animating fabric and cardboard ‘sets’/ digital filming / hand-painting 16mm film
DAY 2 will include: hand-scratched 16mm film/ using torches to explore live animation and story-telling / film viewing space construction / introduction to 16mm projection/ live screening with the 16mm projector from 4pm onwards (parents welcome!)
The workshop will run 10.30-4.30 both days – Saturday and Sunday
