The projector as instrument by Floris Vanhoof

FlorisVanHoof

An immediate form of image and sound creation, playing with the possibilities of film projectors, taking advantage of the mechanics of machines in film performances, discovering what you can do when you have several film projectors running together.
Multi-projector performances allow artist-filmmakers the possibilities to expand their world of light-pictorial techniques. With customised 16mm projectors, the conventional tools become personal instruments used to transform loops of pure black-and-white frames into an immersive perceptual phenomenon.
Stroboscopic, abstract forms pulsing on the screen, slowly transform as additional, overlapping projectors create strange halos, odd 3D expansion and contraction. As more projectors are added,… Continue reading The projector as instrument by Floris Vanhoof

Workshop: Handmade Emulsion – by Lindsay McIntyre

014WORM_FilmWerkPlaats_picture made by _DGuzzo

The alchemical nature of moving images will be explored in this immersive workshop on handmade emulsion. In this 2­ day workshop, experience a taste of 19th century darkroom magic and create an B&W silver gelatin emulsion on 16mm film. Handmade emulsions have a distinct and wonderful look to them that cannot be duplicated by other means and provide a wonderful basis for nearly endless experimentation.
An intensive introduction into the dark arts of home­brewed film emulsion will give participants the necessary theory and tools to formulate their own black and white film emulsion and begin to explore a variety of options for coating the emulsion onto 16mm film.… Continue reading Workshop: Handmade Emulsion – by Lindsay McIntyre

Strategies to Structural Film – workshop by Johann Lurf

zwoelf_boxkaempfer_24-690x388

2-day workshop with filmmaker Johann Lurf at WORM.Filmwerkplaats
Day One: Space
The workshop will present historical and recent film examples on how to approach space with the means of the moving image. These will be explained in their structural approach and also technical methods (for example optical printing and contact printing). Mathematical patterns and editing structures. Maps and their different perspectives as a guide. Camera positions and the moving camera. Three dimensional film making, and collection of visual knowledge.
Day Two: Found Footage

Existing moving imagery and its artistic use.
Concerns of aspect ratios and sound formats –… Continue reading Strategies to Structural Film – workshop by Johann Lurf

Workshop tour – Alternative Emulsions by Esther Urlus

capture-decran-2017-07-06-a-10-04-14

A hands-on workshop that concentrates on two distinct Alternative Emulsion processes; Cyanotype, an iron emulsion process that produces a striking Prussian Blue image and Van Dyke Brown, an iron/silver emulsion that produces a beautiful and painterly sepia coloured image.… Continue reading Workshop tour – Alternative Emulsions by Esther Urlus
