New no.w.here workshops for June and July
no.w.here has announced a practical workshop for emerging artists, filmmakers, cinematographers, and experienced practitioners.
Cinematography and the Artist's film
A practical workshop. Price: no.w.here members £300, non-members £500. The workshop takes place on June 21st, 23rd, 24th and July 5th 2012. This unique workshop investigates how the realisation of artist's films can be enhanced through working with a cinematographer, while also exploring the range of film and digital formats that are available to artists working in the moving image.
Lasers, Rays and Flashlight!
A found footage workshop with Roger Beebe. The workshop will first explore simple approaches to contact printing like the rayograph (simply turning on the overhead lights with raw stock positioned underneath exposed film) and using a laser pointer to selectively expose only parts of the frame. Then, using common everyday materials (a toilet paper tube and a flashlight) along with a little film equipment that one can get for free as cast offs from almost any film school (rewind arms and pic synch), Beebe will demonstrate a simple technique for making longer (sound) prints from any existing 16mm footage. Participants will hand-process their results, cross-processing black-and-white print stocks, to see almost instant results of these different approaches. Participants are free to bring their own footage to print, or footage will be provided for them. This workshop takes place on the 29th June.
A lecture from behind the screen
no.w.here summer school. A Lecture from Behind the Screen is a six-week programme that builds on our reputation as a vital community and site for the production, discussion and dissemination of practices engaged with the moving image, politics, technology and aesthetics. The no.w.here summer school is not interested in reproducing the structures, canons and learning models on offer in Higher Education; equally we are not an autonomous free school. Though no.w.here cannot operate outside the rampant privatisation of education we can provide a pedagogical environment that grounds itself on egalitarian, non-profit terms. A Lecture from Behind the Screen will offer participants a combination of theoretical seminars, one-on-one contact with tutors, student-led activities, field trips, guest workshops led by artists and theorists alongside an intensive programme of hands-on film and video making. These components are reliant upon and reflective of one another in a manner that allows practice to enlighten theory, collective experimentation to inform individual production. June - August 2012.
