This programme include a symposium where experts on early colour systems and processes will refer to what filmmakers could learn and the benefit they can take from the pioneers in this field. The symposium will be an introduction to the practical seminar dedicated research, exchange knowledge, conduct practical experiments and test new formulas in order to develop an on going research project. Finally a workshop tour will offer the possibility to share the craft of producing black and white, silver gelatin emulsion by formulating, mixing and coating emulsion onto clear 16mm filmstrips
In this symposium we will discuss and show the state-of-the-art on handmade emulsion and primitive colour and the current situation of motion picture film as a tool for artist-filmmakers. Experts on early colour systems and processes will refer to what filmmakers could learn, and take benefit of, from the pioneers in this field.
Its focus centres on the scientific and artistic research of the forgotten, abandoned and unexplored areas of the photochemical processes used in early colour films. By researching into early cinema publications and documents, contemporary filmmakers are able to discover a wide range of processes that have been abandoned in their primitive stages of development,… Continue reading Symposium: Handmade Emulsion Primitive Colour
