Workshop: Analog Film

The world of audiovisual media is undergoing radical change: Digital dominates today, while the analog medium as well as its related techniques and skills are disappearing. Nevertheless, analog film technology and the materials produced as a result have shaped both the development of the film medium and our viewing habits. The “Analog Film Workshop” makes it possible to journey back in time to the analog era of film, inviting participants to take part in a concentrated and practical examination of this film medium. In the course of creating individual short films, participants adopt the roles of directors and cameramen and women, accompanying works from production through projection. Under the guidance of a film expert each short film is first planned and then realized with cuts, using a Super 8 professional camera. Participants meet on a subsequent date, after the film negatives have been developed, to jointly view and discuss the films.

 

This program is carried out in cooperation with the COLOR CLUB cinematic art project.

 

Duration: 2 days
Participants: 5–10
