16 MM HAND-PAINTING ON FILM DIRECT FILMMAKING WORKSHOP
Instructor: Steve Cossman
Tuesdays, Feb 8th, 15th, & 27th 7:00-9:15 pm
In this workshop students will learn to manipulate the surface of the film using a variety of direct film-making techniques; painting, scratching, collage, and masking in order to create an experimental film on 16mm. This intensive workshop is designed to introduce, explore and master (on some level) the ability to articulate movement through the tactile gesturings of this beautiful cinematic language.
The course will meet 4 times, beginning with a brief history of filmmakers using these methods along with their contemporaries. After instruction students will get their hands dirty almost immediately.
The goal is to have each participant create a well developed direct film work, that we will screen at the end of the session. Students will walk away with hands on experience of direct filmmaking, a finished film work, the knowledge to continue to work in this practice at home and a list of venues to pursue for exhibition. All materials will be provided for.
COURSE FEE: $75 (includes film and materials)
