Saturday, September 9th, 9:00am-1:00pm
Attendance to the workshop will grant you FREE admission to Sunday's screening
In this workshop, Robert Schaller of the Handmade Film Institute will present one of the simplest and earliest photographic devices, the pinhole. Participants will learn the basics of pinhole photography and will achieve a better understanding of various photographic principles such as light, aperture, focal length, film plane, and the camera obscura effect. Through in depth instruction and hands on experience, participants will then be able to practically apply these concepts to motion picture cinematography using 16mm film. Participants will learn to construct their own motion picture pinhole cameras from scratch, utilize pinholes in 16mm Bolex cameras, and will shoot a variety of 16mm film strips that will then be processed on-site to be viewed at the end of the workshop.
***All materials for the workshop will be provided***
