Time and Rosemary: Bolex 16mm camera and ecological hand processing

£100.00 / Sold Out

This workshop will show you how to use an H16 Bolex clockwork 16mm camera, as well as strategies for shooting film in eco friendly and frugal ways.

Artists James Holcombe and Rosalind Fowler will deliver this workshop, building on their experiences of ecological filmmaking. The workshop will be contextualised by screening work from Fowler's 2016 residency at the William Morris Gallery along with work made by other artists utilising ecologically friendly modes of production in their work. The course will provide tips and resources for moving towards an ecological filmmaking practice.

We will cover how the Bolex H16 camera is loaded, operated, lenses, light metering and creative camera techniques as well as strategies for shooting. In the morning we will shoot together as a group, returning to no.w.here to process footage in an eco-friendly way using caffinol and other eco formulated developers such as beer, tea, potato, wine and rosemary..
