Hybrid Strategies for Film & Video
Past workshop, not currently available
Part of the 23rd annual $100 Film Festival, this workshop will introduce and provide practical skills for artists interested in using video to alter and augment film images. The workshop is offered in two sessions, the first being historical and demonstrative, the second involving practical exercises. Among the topics addressed will be the ways in which video has come to emulate traditional printing processes and the processes by which one might output digital augmentations of film back to film (through re-photography). The central learning goals of this workshop are to train participants to pursue new possibilities for working between mediums.
Students are encouraged to have prerequisite knowledge of 16mm camera and editing operation processes. The main tool used in the practical portion of this workshop is Adobe After Effects, and no pre-existing knowledge of it is required.
