In this workshop participants will learn 16mm filmmaking techniques for shooting on color negative film from start to finish. Curriculum covers camera options, Kodak Vision 3 color stocks, exposure, filters, lenses, how to load, focus, run, operate the H16 Bolex Reflex camera, how to effectively communicate with the lab to obtain a beautifully timed color print, editing workflows and theater projection. Participants will spend one day shooting then will meet again to view the raw footage to talk about editing options and presentation. The goal is to create a short film on 16mm which you conceived, directed, shot, splice edited, and projected independently. We will also discuss how to promote your short piece through a list of friendly film festivals. All materials, processes and equipment will be provided for. Finished projects will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party.
