A 16mm colour contact printer workshop at WPC  by Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie

 

"A 16mm contact printer is a great thing to have. It's a very powerful piece of film-making equipment and is an essential part of the apparatus of cinema. And Sydney's new Workshop for Potential Cinema has one! Traditionally, the contact printer was designed to do one thing: make near perfect duplicates relatively quickly. If you have access to one, however, there is much more that can be done with these machines than just simple duplication. It's possible to use them for compositing images and other improvisatory image manipulations. In this workshop we will explore the basic operation of the contact printer in colour printing onto Kodak 3383 16mm colour print stock... And then we will get into some of the serious game playing that's possible with a simple colour contact printer".

When:   Saturday 28th April, 2018 10.30am - 6pm

Where: "Archies"

             Archway 4
            Jubilee Park Oval
            Chapman Road (see contacts page for more details)

Chromaflex – experimental colour film workshop

 

                    Still from Ginza Strip (2014)

Sydney College of the Arts & Workshop for Potential Cinema presents visiting filmmaker Richard Tuohy in a unique hands on workshop. This all day workshop will be a crash course in working with16mm film and experimental dark room techniques to explore a new photo-chemical approach, ‘Chromaflex’, which allows colour and black and white images on the same strip of film.

 

This technique can generate areas of colour negative, colour positive, black and white, as well as areas of clear or black all on the one strip of film or indeed within the one frame.

 

The Chromaflex workshop is suitable for film novices however, it is equally engaging for advanced experimental film practitioners.
