Learn to conjure the sensual secrets from deep within the super 8 cartridge in this half-workshop, half-thought experiment, half-mystical experience.

Comprised of two 4-hour classes, participants will learn the mystical nature of analog filmmaking through both theoretical and practical studies. The alchemical secrets of the small-gauge to be learned include open exposure photography (which mimics double exposure), light table animation, stop motion techniques, cross fades and other tricks on the all-powerful Braun Nizo Super 8 camera (among other cameras)!

Participants are encouraged to come with ideas in mind and are welcome to contact the instructor in advance with questions / ideas / things they hope to learn, as this will be a collaborative learning odyssey.
