Bolex cameras are lightweight, inexpensive and versatile. They are emblematic of independent and artist films because their simplicity makes them an ideal tool to learn how to shoot on film while allowing a large creative control thanks to their advanced features.
We propose to teach you how to manipulate the camera and master its subtleties:

  • Inner workings of the camera
  • Operation and choice of film
  • Functions and accessories
  • Handling the camera – checking, preparing, cleaning and loading
  • Choice of lenses
  • Exposure and use of a light meter
  • Creative possibilities offered

You will also learn how to prepare yourself for the realities of analog filming with some useful tools.
Numerous clips from Bolex films will be shown during the workshop to illustrate the range of possibilities offered by these cameras.
The cameras used during the workshop: Bolex RX-5 16mm and EBM Super 16mm

The price of the workshop includes technical tests on color film, development and scanning. Please note that the workshop documentation is in English.
