Have you wondered would it would be like to shoot a scene on actual motion picture film? In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of exposure and camera operation with 16mm and Super 8mm cameras as they shoot a scene for a silent film. A variety of film stocks will be used so that participants can learn how each stock affects the story and the overall look of the film. After the film is processed, participants will return to view the results. Some shooting may take place outdoors, so please dress for the weather.

March 23rd (10am – 5pm)
