In this analog filmmaking class students will learn about cinema and shoot using traditional motion picture cameras. We discuss cinema history, camera mechanics, hand-processing etc. We will then break up into groups and shoot 1 to 2 short films using Super 8 analog cameras in and around VITA. THEN!!!! We hand process the reels using non-toxic eco developers with Coffee, Vitamin C, Washing Soda and assorted flowers participants have gathered!!!! We then string up our film together and watch the magic unfold before our eyes!!! The results areBEAUTIFUL and experimental and figurative in nature.
