Event Details

DESCRIPTION

This 16mm workshop will take the participants step by step through a jazzy new photo-chemical technique which allows selectively controlled negative and positive colour and black and white images on the same strip of film. What’s more, the technique allows us to make these selection decisions in full light with the images visible right there in front of you. You can have areas of black, areas of clear, colour negative areas, colour positive areas and glorious black and white images all within a single frame of ordinary camera captured image. We then get to watch the colour chemistry working its magic—again, in full light. The workshop begins with a freshly made colour print of colour negative material. But instead of processing this print in the normal ECP process, we will be undertaking our novel processing sequence that will produce an odd looking positive black and white image on the film. We will then select various areas on that print that we want to end up as positive colour, negative colour, leave black and white or process as black or clear film. Those areas will be selectively covered with special chemical blocking tape. Then the film will be selectively bathed in an assortment of colour chemistry before removing the tape and bathing in more chemistry. As well as engaging with a great new experimental film technique, this workshop is a great opportunity to learn in detail how colour film works.

INSTRUCTORS 

Richard Tuohy is one of the most active experimental film artists currently working on celluloid in Australia. His film Iron-Wood won first prize (ex aequo) at the 2009 International Abstract Cinema Exhibition (ABSTRACTA) in Rome. He runs Nanolab in Australia—the specialist small gauge film processing laboratory. He actively encourages other artists to work with cine film through his Artist Film Workshop initiative. In 2006 he and his partner started Nanolab as an artist run film laboratory offering super 8 processing.

As a young person Dianna Barrie found her way into filmmaking as a middle ground between the pursuit of abstract music and philosophy. Ever pushing the limits of the hand processing of Super 8 led to the establishment of Nanolab with Richard Tuohy, and into the intersection of hand making and industrial cinema technology. This exploration has spread beyond individual work to the establishment of Artist Film Workshop, where celluloid is embraced and advocated by a community of practitioners in Melbourne.

**Sight Unseen will also present a screening of Tuohy & Barrie's films on Friday, October 24th, 2014. Further details TBA!
