16MM FILM This undergraduate and graduate class is designed to introduce participants to the creative use of analog 16mm film in conventional and unconventional ways. The bright pixels of digital video make for captivating imagery, but there¿s a unique beauty to the swirl of grain in analog film. If you want to experience the hands-on physicality of mechanical and chemical reproduction, if you want a deeper understanding of the origins of all the settings on your video camera, if you want to know what an actual frame, shutter, and aperture are, and if you want a change from this age of digital reproduction wherein every task means sitting at a monitor and clicking a mouse, 16mm Film Production may be for you. The class will cover the basics of shooting 16mm film and delve into alternative methods of creating in the medium (hand-processing, camera-less film techniques, in-camera special effects, etc.). In-class workshops will be supplemented by take-home assignments and exercises. Although more of a materials and processes class, the semester will culminate in a group installation. Hands-on production will be supported with technical- and theory-based readings along with screenings of contemporary and historical work. Students will receive some assistance with supplies and film stock, but should expect to spend additionally on stock and processing. Lab fee $194.
