New York Summer Workshops by MONO NO AWARE

There's a lot going on this summer in and around New York for analog photographers and filmmakers alike. And, a big chunk of our calendar is filled with workshops held by our analog friends from MONO NO AWARE, who are doing a hell of a job of helping us out to keep motion picture film alive and exciting.

Here's what's coming up

Shooting B/W Hi-Con as 35 mm still & processing as reversal for fine grain B/W slides

In this workshop participants will be introduced to HI-CONTRAST motion picture film stock Kodak's 5369. We'll work as a group to shoot a roll of this HI-CON film to better understand its limitations and its possibilities as a still camera stock. Curriculum will cover the basics of ordering, spooling down and shooting on ESTAR film stocks, how to expose properly and how to cross-process the film as a positive image. With your own camera you'll shoot and process a roll in the workshop then, we will go over key chemical reactions, how to mix our own B/W reversal chemistry and process the film. Additionally, each student will take home an additional roll of this film to shoot and process at a later date! Bring your own 35mm still camera, then all film stock, canisters, chemicals and related equipment will be provided for.

Six hour classroom instruction session with access to the entire wet-lab, 1 roll of 35mm HI-CON motion picture film stock to be shot as a group, Reversal processing chemistry, with access to Pyrex glassware, nitrile gloves, drying rack, and processing equipment for 35mm still film. ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE 2 ROLLS OF UNEXPOSED STOCK; one to take photos during the class and process. Plus a second to take home and process later.

Liquid light projection performance techniques

In this incredible workshop participants will learn how to create Liquid Light Projections from the New York performance group, A Clockface Orange. Reminiscent of the psychedelic projection shows popularized in the late 60s to accompany live music and wild parties, liquid light shows comprise of layers of colored oil and alcohol moving over the heat of a lamp to produce brilliant color patterns. At the start of the workshop, we will give a brief history and science of the process. Next we will cover proper equipment and related materials, and demonstrate various techniques. We will then get our hands dirty (literally) and begin heavy experimentation to develop and collectively present our own liquid light show.

** Note: Please be aware that we will be working with strong oil-based dyes and it has a tendency to get messy! Dress accordingly.

One 6-hour classroom instruction session and access to all materials; lenses, oils, dyes, projectors, filters, Liquid Light informational course packet, HD documentation of performance, HD online hosting of documentation, local & international festival entry waivers.
