Make your own big screen film on small format in one weekend! A straight 8 film is a short film made within the space of the 3 minutes of a single Super8 cartridge, shot and edited in the camera, hand-developed and projected. It is a fun and challenging introduction to film-making and the unique style and possibilities of analogue film.
Anyone with or without film-making or darkroom experience will enjoy this workshop. You’ll learn the fundamentals of filmmaking including shot-blocking terminology, story-boarding and coming up with film concepts! You’ll shoot your film with an experienced DP to guide you, and you’ll learn how to hand develop black and white cinema film and record live Foley sound effects!
We’ll provide all the equipment and materials, and all your storyboards will be written during the workshop, but feel free to bring ideas!
Saturday 08 and Sunday 09 January, 10am to 4pm each day.
All the equipment, chemistry and film is provided.
