Movement Imagined: 16mm Filmmaking with a Pinhole Camera

By on


Average: 5 (1 vote)

A 2-Day Photography Class for Ages 13+

In this workshop, we will experiment with some of the most archaic photography techniques; pinhole camera and contact printing. From images captured on 16mm film frame by frame, we create negative and positive copies with Print Film. This technique allows the freedom to work directly with the surface of the film with light, in the same way as a painter leaves their gesture on a canvas.

Using a 35mm photographic film cassette loaded 16mm film, participants will construct their own rudimentary DIY pinhole cameras using household items on day one, and return on day two to develop their film and create a finished 16mm film, splicing the classes images together.

Students will also view works made with these techniques by artists like Paolo Gioli, Dianna Barrie, Philipp Fleischmann, and others.

Participants are welcome to bring their own household materials for a Pinhole Camera – a matchbox, mint tin, 35mm pot, or other similar small box. Otherwise, Materials and Supplies Included.
