crossprocessingworkshop

During this workshop, you will learn a process improved and designed to try and emulate Kodak Ektachrome film. This film offered beautifully saturated and rich colors. Since Ektachrome has been discontinued there is no longer color reversal motion picture film. Through a few years of testing, Z. Hart was able to achieve what he believes are beautiful and close to accurate colors. This is possible through cross processing negative emulsions in E-6 chemistry. He uses the Tetenal 3 bath E-6 developing kit and has increased the time and temperatures to very specific spots. With a good exposure in the camera and careful processing of the film, you’ll get great results.

You can find an example here.

Zach Hart is a filmmaker and teacher for Mono No Aware in New York, USA. He has also taught and screened at Hampshire College, Bard College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Echo Park Film Center to name a few.

Participation is limited and pre-registration is required. To register for the workshop please send an email to labor.organisation@gmail.com

Screen Bandita invite you to an friendly, participatory community gathering. Together, we’ll be exploring personal archival materials and the many ways to revitalise and reinvent them through creative projects. Session runs between 2.00-4.30 and comprises of two segments.

First half: 2.00-3.00
A welcoming space in which to to share, speak and listen. Bring an object, memory, song, text, 8mm or 16mm film, photograph or slide that means something to you to share with the group. An opportunity to connect with others through memories and personal artifacts!

Second Half: 3.30-4.30

An open discussion where all voices and thoughts are very welcome. We will be asking questions such as: Where can I find myself in an archive? how can one connect emotionally with archival material? how can archival material be revitalised and engaged imaginatively and creatively?

All interested individuals, artists, students, archivists etc most welcome. No experience or special knowledge necessary!

Screen Bandita are the Edinburgh and Melbourne-based collective of Lydia Beilby and Leanora Olmi.The duo create performative, live-cinema works using archival, found 8mm and 16mm film, slides, photographs and ephemera as source materials. Through the exploration of the ‘forgotten’ and obsolete elements of photochemical film, the analogue projection medium and visual culture, Screen Bandita forge elemental links with the past, while creating new participatory pieces very much rooted in the present. Within their work they aim to foreground the notion of archives as vibrant, living entities to be constantly reinvigorated, reinterpreted, reinvented and debated.

Following Lutz Garmsen’s Crass Masterclass LaborBerlin announces its second Crass Animation Stand follow-up workshop. In this workshop participants will have the chance to learn the wide array of filmmaking tools that the animation stand offers. Taught by LaborBerlin members Antonio Castles and Lucas Maia present at the masterclass the workshop is intended for beginners with little to no experience with the equipment.

They will learn: how to load the camera, the basic operation of the camera and controls, simple animation techniques, double exposures, fades, rear projection as well as develop and print tests.

Participation is limited and pre-registration is required. To register for the workshop please send an email to labor.organisation@gmail.com

Sweet 16 – 16mm Workshop

Our artist-in-residence Andrew Kim taught a two day 16mm workshop (23.07 – 24.07.2016). Participants learned how to expose different b&w film stocks with a bolex camera and hand developed the footage as b&w reversal.

The Projector As Instrument – PHOTOS

Floris Vanhoof spent two days this week with us teaching his workshop The Projector as Instrument. The group used contact printing and high contrast film to make loops which they subsequently altered through projection.

LaborBerlin is proud to welcome Floris Vanhoof to lead the first workshop of the RE-MI (Re-Engineering Moving Image) project. REMI is a cooperation project run by Mire (Nantes, FR), WORM.Filmwerkplaats (Rotterdam, NL) and LaborBerlin (Berlin, DE), focused on the creation, preservation and circulation of technical knowledge of analogue film in order to support its use as a creative medium.

Floris will lead participants in exploring the possibilities of the film projector as an artistic tool. Together they will shoot, develop and print footage in black and white and color which they will combine with multiple projectors to explore different techniques of loop phasing. Join us in transforming the projector from a passive device into an an instrument that can push the boundaries of perception. More information about the workshop can be found on here.

Floris Vanhoof from Antwerpen (BE), is a media-archeologist who deliberately chooses analogue technology, not for nostalgic reasons but because he wants to experiment with what once has been considered high-tech. His work also includes new technologies like microprocessors. Technology is not an end in itself but a means to explore new images, ideas and sounds in a poetic way.

Participation is limited and pre-registration is required. To register for the workshop please send an email to labor.organisation@gmail.com

Workshop fee for non-members: 50 €

Masterclass – Using and reusing Crass Animation Equipment

From April 11 to 15,  ten lab members worked with Lutz Garmsen to learn the ins and outs of the Crass animation and optical printing equipment. After 5 days of intense work we were able to set up a fully functioning animation table with the option of shooting on either 16, super 16 or 35mm, plus the option of using rear projection on 16mm. We also set up a optical printing bench that allows us to do 16mm optical printing and blow ups from 16mm to 35mm.
Thanks to Lutz Garmsen for all the help and guidance. We’re eager to see the great new works that the machines will allow LaborBerlin members to bring into the world!
