Hybridization of New & Old Technologies in Handmade Films

Workshop → 9:00 am

Two-day in-person workshop by Sarah Smith (Assistant Professor of Photography at PrattMWP)

  • 9th March & 10th March 2022, 9 AM – 12 PM
  • Room 268
  • Upon Registration Only

Participants will engage in two collaborative, handmade 16mm films. The process of creation and destruction are both featured in similar but disparate processes that we will explore. These processes build on the hybridization of new and old technologies while engaging with the reuse of preexisting materials.

The first film is an exercise in making something out of nothing. Using clear and black 16mm film leader as a base, participants will create handmade films using demonstrated techniques. We will question how you create a narrative, tension, and rhythm while only using color and abstract forms. The second film which features the act of destruction is about remixing and appropriating clips that already exist with the end goal of changing the context of the original film.

This event is an in-person event for the VCUarts Qatar community only.
