Project and Survive

Start:10.03.2018 11:00 h
End:11.03.2018 17:00 h

Based on years of performance work using a range of different projection techniques, Greg Pope will take you through various live cinema strategies. We will look at live cinema from a punk aesthetic, using materials to hand combined with the idea of ‘projector as instrument’.

We will investigate proto-cinema image technologies using additional shutters with slide projectors and film projectors. Create sound through acoustic and amplified means using contact mics and old guitar pick-ups; the voice; the body; materials collected from the locality.

The workshop will be largely practical – working towards a series of live mini performance pieces created by the participants.

Balga
16mm, 5min, mute, b&w, 2012
This film is inspired by a plant native to Australia, the grass tree. I was attracted by the slow growth of the trees,their spectacular figures and the ways in which their existence connects the land, the plant and the people. High contrast black and white film was used to capture and document the movement of the grass tree, as a way to reflect their visual poetry.
The scientific name of the grass tree is Xanthorrhoea preissii, people also call it Balga.

Flow
16mm,B&W,optical sound,17 min, 2013

‘Change is a process, is the starting point equal to the end point? What if everything is in a flow, what meaning of value of life can be derived from the intercomnectedness of all things? Reflecting the subtle relationships between the flow of changing, awareness of being and observation of breathing through abstract and rhythmic moving images. Integrating and developing a poetic state of contemplative and meditative process and flow in between void and solid; moving and still; expanding and gathering; strength and softness.

End:25.02.2018 17:00 h

This workshop will be focused on experience, observation, awareness, and practice in relation to image-making on 16mm film. The workshop will focus on cyanotype as a light sensitive emulsion; its uses and abstractions. Participants will be guided through various excercises, in order to reach a new understanding of their own process. This approach aims to spark new ideas, understandings, and become input for a personal and reflective way of filming and experimenting.

The workshop will consist of three parts, creative observation exercise, lab work, and exposure image-making. There will be a final screening presentation at the end of class on Sunday.

Lichun Tseng (1979, TW/NL)
In my works, I am interested in searching for the experience of the vital dimensions of life, absorbing and partaking in it, grasping its wholeness; in which exploration and reflective contemplation are profound mental drives. I am one of the members of an artist run lab, Filmwerkplaats, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Lichuntseng.com

Rebecca Erin Moran (1976, USA/IS)
Time and the act of questioning its percieved linearity is a central focus of my artistic practice in the last years. What is the duration of a volume of time compressed into a space; the repitition of a sequence of single frames of film, the materialization of time in an object. I have approached this investigation mainly through the medium of 16mm film, installation, performance, and sculpture.

Starting from Scratch: Contact Printing Workshop

Start:25.08.2017 11:00 h
End:27.08.2017 18:00 h

@ Polar Film Lab, Tromsø, Norway

Contact printing special effects workshop tought by filmmaker Esther Urlus:
Primarily, contact printing is a technique used to reproduce images from an already existing strip of film, most often implemented when producing a projection positive from a camera negative. This function of reproduction is inherent to film. Beyond this basic function, much artistic experimentation can be explored with this technique.

This workshop will show you (hands-on) some great contact printing techniques to create an unique aesthetics in your filmmaking. We will use a silkscreen printing lookalike technique on celluloid. Film as a canvas to create new and unique coloured originals. Starting point are on black and white hi-con filmed “mattes” as source material and we will transform these into multi layered technicolour. It incorporates the uses (and abuses) of film print materials, development processes and chemistry and converting a Steenbeck flatbed editing table into a DIY contact printer.

About Esther Urlus:
Esther Urlus makes Super8, 16mm and 35mm films and installations. Her work always arise from the DIY method. Kneading with the material, by trial, error and (re) inventing, she creates new work.
She is founder of the WORM.filmwerkplaats, its an artist run film lab in Rotterdam (NL).
Films: Idyll 2008, Deep Red 2012, Rode Moden / Red mill 2013, Konrad & Kurfürst 2014.
Two of her films will be shown in a program on friday!

Ekofoto

06.07.2017 18:00 - 21:00 h

Fotografier kan göras på många olika sätt. På hantverkarkvällen den 6.7 på Granösunds fiskeläge i Södra Vallgrund ska vi framkalla fotografier med miljövänliga och giftfria framkallningsvätskor gjorda av till exempel kaffepulver, såkallad Caffenol-framkallning.
Man kan då får prova på att kopiera negativ till fotografisk papper i ett mörkrum eller låna en kamera för att fotografera egna bilder som sedan framkallas.
Inga förkunskaper behövs. En liten materialavgift tillkommer för den som vill delta. Vi har ingen förhandsanmälan men kom i tid till kl. 18 om det låter intressant!
Kvällen leds av Daniel Beijar och Britt Al-Busultan från Filmverkstaden i Vasa.

New Maps of the New World

17.06.2017 20:30 - 21:30 h

Filmverkstaden is delighted to present an evening with films by Roger Beebe (US). Roger Beebe is a filmmaker whose work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple projector performances that explore the world of found images and the “found” landscapes of late capitalism.
The filmmaker himself will attend, so there will be an opportunity to talk about the films afterwards.

TB TX DANCE (2006, 16mm, 3:00)
A cameraless film made of patterns of dots directly laser printed on clear leader. That background also doubles as an optical soundtrack with different pitches created by the different sizes/frequencies of the dots. This film was commissioned by Mike Plante at Cinematexas in 2005. The rules for this commission: Reference dance. Reference Texas. Have an autograph in it. Mention Toni Basil.

The Strip Mall Trilogy (2001, super 8, 9:00)
The Strip Mall Trilogy is a series of three city symphonies that attempt to liberate form and color from the sprawling consumerist landscape of postmodern America. The film was shot on super 8 and, with the exception of a few sequences in part 2, was edited entirely in camera.

S A V E (2006, 16mm, 5:00)
A disused gas station offers a curious imperative: “Save.” A riddle posed in the form of architecture: what is there to save? One more installment in the history of Americans pointing their cameras at gas stations; an attempt to figure out something about where we’ve been, where we’re headed, and what’s been left behind. The first part of S A V E was also edited entirely in camera.

Tiger, Tiger (music video) (2016, 16mm on HD video, 4:45)
A music video for the band Holopaw that uses found footage from a boys camp outside of Austin, TX in the 1950s. The video wonders what other paths masculinity might take in the time of Trump.

Congratulations (One Step at a Time) (2014, HD video, 4:00)
Notes on gender in the 21st Century. A sad sequel to “You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby.” The video is single-take cinema that exists in both one-hour installation form and this truncated theatrical version.

tour/TOWER (2008, 16mm, 5:00)
I saw a kid playing in a sandbox, blissfully unaware that the Eiffel Tower loomed in the background. This film is an attempt to learn from that child and explore all the overlooked things that surround the tower.

Money Changes Everything (2009/rev. 2011, 3 × 16mm, 5:00)
Three days in Las Vegas, Nevada; three different visions of the discarded past and of the constantly renewed future. A three-part portrait of a town in transformation: a suburban utopia in the desert, a cancerous sprawl of unplanned development, a destination for suicides.

A Metaphor for the End of Just About Everything (2016, HD video, 3:00)
A document of the final hours of Long’s Book Store, a victim to both technological change and the pressures of real-estate development. The video is also a reflection on mortality, resonating with the billboard image of Félix González Torres’s “Untitled (for Parkett),” which was also destroyed with the building.

AAAAA Motion Picture (2010, 2 × 16mm, 12:00)
The Manhattan phone book has 14 pages of companies jockeying to be at the start of the alphabetical listings. Capitalism triumphs over linguistic richness yet again. Our challenge: to learn how to write poetry when there’s only one letter left. Made with a combination of original footage and a direct transfer of the pages of the phone book to 16mm clear leader.

Free entrance!

Sound and Image: Making films on a laserprinter

17.06.2017 11:00 - 18:00 h

Roger Beebe (US) leads a two-day workshop on how to use a regular office laser printer to make both images and sounds on film. The workshop will cover the basics of the technique for printing on clear leader before showing how to make do-it-yourself contact prints from your original films. We will discuss the basics of optical tracks and different approaches to making sound by printing in the soundtrack area. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops, since much of the time will be spent working with their own files. We will primarily be working with generating 10-second loops (with looping in projection also to be demonstrated as part of the workshop), and we will explore projecting multiple laser-printer loops simultaneously. By the end of the workshop every participant should have multiple completed laser-printer loops of their own.

Roger Beebe is a filmmaker whose work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple projector performances that explore the world of found images and the “found” landscapes of late capitalism. He has screened his films around the globe at such unlikely venues as the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square and McMurdo Station in Antarctica as well as more likely ones including Sundance and the Museum of Modern Art with solo shows at Anthology Film Archives, The Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City, and Los Angeles Filmforum among many other venues. Beebe is also a film programmer: he ran Flicker, a festival of small-gauge film in Chapel Hill, NC, from 1997-2000 and was the founder and Artistic Director of FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film Festival from 2004-2014. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Art at the Ohio State University.
