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.

This workshop was part of RE MI. Photos by Laurence Favre.

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!

LIFT OFF: An Emulsion Lift Workshop

Date: Wednesday, June 24 & Thursday, June 25 2015
Workshop: 10:30 – 17:00 both days

LIFT3

Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart will be visiting LaborBerlin to teach the workshop LIFT OFF: An Emulsion Lift Workshop.

“Lift Off” is a two part workshop examining material manipulations of 16mm film. The workshop will focus primarily on the emulsion lift and reticulation technique to explore degradation and decay. An emulsion lift is where film is immersed in a hot sodium carbonate solution, this causes the emulsion to reticulate and separate from the films base. Once separated the emulsion can be placed on a variety of separate materials; including another piece of clear film. This technique will combine direct animation with photochemical manipulation; to present a cohesive survey of material investigations to workshop participants.

Emulsion lifted film cannot be projected directly because the film surface is so fragile. The second part of the workshop will focus on making film prints of the manipulated film. Film will be printed to black and white film via a synchronizer, used as a diy contact printer. Additionally prints will be made via direct exposure by placing film directly on unexposed stock.

Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart are artists currently living in Colorado (USA). They share an affinity for 16mm filmmaking, they use photochemical processes as a means to explore the interconnectedness of time, history and the landscape. They are currently collaborating on a film investigating the history of uranium mining and nuclear weapons testing in the American Southwest.

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

Workshop fee for non-members: 40 € plus 5 € for materials
