Sight Unseen is excited to announce a new series of workshops that will focus on various filmmaking techniques. With support from the 2014 MICA LAB Award and Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, Sight Unseen has developed a new workshop series that will host national and international filmmakers, visiting Baltimore to facilitate these workshops at the Current Space Darkroom.
In this two day workshop, participants will study the craft of producing black and white, silver gelatin emulsion by formulating, mixing and coating emulsion onto cellulose acetate and various other materials.
Theories concerning emulsion chemistry and emulsion production will also be explored in this workshop, providing participants with a foundation to develop their own processes and methodologies.
Previous experience working with film is not required for attending the workshop, though some film processing experience is recommended -- In any event, we will do everything possible to clarify questions that you may have before, during or after the workshop.
Additionally, participants are encouraged to bring in film negatives or positives for contact printing, or objects for photogramming.
Please pre-register by July 8th via Paypal
The workshop is limited to 10 people.
