2014 Oak Cliff Film Festival: Mono No Aware Direct Filmmaking Workshop - Day One
In this two-day workshop students will learn to manipulate the surface of 16mm film using a variety of direct film-making techniques: painting, scratching, collage and masking in order to create an experimental animation.
This intensive workshop is designed to introduce, explore and master (on some level) the ability to articulate movement through the tactile gesturings of this beautiful cinematic language. The course will meet two times, beginning with a brief history of filmmakers using these methods along with their contemporaries.
After instruction students will get their hands dirty almost immediately. The goal is to have each participant create a short direct film work on 16mm film, that we will screen at the end of the session. Participants will walk away with hands on experience of direct filmmaking, a finished film work, the knowledge to continue to work in this practice at home and a list of venues to pursue for exhibition. All materials will be provided for.
