16mm & Super 8 Filmmaking Workshop Screening Celebration
With Megan Hess.
Come and see the finished film works of our 16 mm filmmaking and Super 8 workshop participants! Watch inspired film works projected on 16mm presented by the filmmakers, who were instructed by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Megan Hess. Afterwards, we’ll be celebrating with the participants of our recently completed round of filmmaking workshops. Come to the screening or come out to the party at 10pm for drinks and dancing.
The Super 8 four-session class introduced the basics of making a 3-minute black & white Super8 film. In learning the language of film each student documented something that grips them about their life right now. Playing on the nostalgic feeling super-8 film conjures for most viewers thier will attempt to create short films that display the sweetness of today through the lens of yesteryear.
The 16mm four-session class introduced students to the basics of 16mm filmmaking by gaining an elementary knowledge of the Bolex camera and light meter, analog editing, and visual storytelling. Each student created his or hers own 3-minute personal film exploring an idea, feeling, notion or thought utilizing the tools of cinema.
