Wolverine: Digitize your Super 8 and 8mm film Open House/Workshop 

Wed. Sept. 13th, 6pm-9pm

PAVED Arts is excited to unveil one of our latest pieces of acquired gear! All members are invited to the PAVED Arts/AKA Event Space where our PAVED staff will demonstrate how to digitize your Super 8 and 8mm films!

We will have the Wolverine MovieMaker set up as well as a digital projector to display the files it produces. We’ll use test footage to illustrate the process from film to digital movies, and have examples to compare between the two mediums.

This will be a Come and Go workshop with continuous demonstrations throughout the evening, so please don’t hesitate to come on by and check it out if you’re interested!

For those members interested in digitizing their own films, there will be opportunities to make future bookings at the Production Centre to do so.

Save your 8mm and Super 8 films by converting them to digital with the 8mm and Super 8 Movie Reels2Digital MovieMaker from Wolverine Data. Using a 3.53MP 1/3″ CMOS sensor, this device can create HD 960 x 720 footage at 30 fps. It can work with either 3 or 5″ reels and offers both automatic and manual exposure control options. Also, footage is recorded to an SD or SDHC memory card.


Introduction to Photogrammetry: Creating 3D Models from Photographs by François Quévillon

Thursday, September 14th 2017, 6-9 PM

Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. The practice is
almost as old as photography and became popular recently with the accessibility of digital
cameras and software. Mainly employed for scientific purpose in the past, it’s now commonly
used to make 3D models of objects and environments. François Quévillon will cover the basic
methods, give set up tips and examples of how he has used photogrammetry and geomatics in
several of his works. The workshop will provide a hands-on approach for participants to make
photogrammetric models with their camera and software or to assist others in the process. It will
also be an occasion to discuss about how it can be used in a diversity of art practices.
Participants can bring their camera (ideally a DSLR but a smartphone will do) and their laptop if
they want to work with their own equipment.
This workshop has a capped attendance, if you are interested in attending please email

Mixing Your Reality: implications of immersive technology on artistic practice

Thursday, Sept. 28th, 7pm
The workshop is an introduction and overview to the current technical and conceptual approaches to content creation for immersive technologies. There will be immersive content to view and a broad exploration of some of the applications and developments in the industry. Specifically, new developments in video tools and techniques, and some very simple workflows for 360 degree video will also be discussed. This event is recommended for beginner and intermediate levels of technical skill.

These workshops are open to members only.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Capacity is limited.
