Workshop - Exploratory Cinema - Spring 2024

With Théo Parent

Member $150 | Non-member $225

This workshop will take the participants step by step through a jazzy DIY 16mm film developing technique: Chromaflex.

This technique 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. 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!
