This workshop will take the participants step by step through a jazzy DIY 16mm film developing technique. This technique, which we call Chromaflex, allows selectively controlled negative and positive colour and black and white images on the same strip of film. What’s more, the technique allows us to make these selection decisions in full light with the images visible right there in front of you. You can have areas of black, areas of clear, colour negative areas, colour positive areas and glorious black and white images all within a single frame. We then get to watch the colour chemistry working its magic – again, in full light. As well as engaging with a cool experimental film technique, this workshop is a great opportunity to learn in detail how colour developing works. Do this workshop and you would have no trouble doing DIY 16mm processing at home!

The workshop is entirely given in English.

The price of the workshop includes the films and chemistries used.
