Workshop Details

Bolex H16
The Bolex 16mm camera has shaped and defined artist’s film for over half a century. no.w.here staff provide cameras and cover the basic features of how the Bolex is loaded and operated, lenses,focussing, and light metering followed by participants shooting a single 100ft roll of black and white film between them. Once films are processed participants analyse their work on the Steenbeck editing table. The workshop ends with a projector screening of all the
films made on the course.

Optical Printing
This course will demonstrate how to transfer super 8 to 16mm or 16mm to 16mm, create freeze frames from footage already captured, fast and slow motion effects, double exposures, bi-packing, and the use of filters with the JK optical printer.

Contact Printing
Learn how to save the expense of commercial labs by making your own 16mm prints from 16mm negatives, grade your prints, analyse your negatives, hand process tests, as well as the endless scope for experimentation possible using the Debrie 16mm contact printer.

Super 8 colour shooting and hand processing
An intensive, hands on course that takes you through the Super 8 camera, stocks, shooting film, and hand processing. Examining cameras and their features, film stock, exposure, light meters and filters, participants shoot the new Ektachrome 100d super 8 stock and learn how to hand process this film using the Lomo developing tank. The course also looks at work made by artists using Super 8, focusing on its aesthetic qualities and flexibility of shooting, and ends with a screening of the films made on the course. You may wish to use your own cameras on this course, although no.w.here does have some basic models.

NEW COURSE: 8mm and 16mm black and white reversal hand processing
Hand processing black and white can be one of the most interesting things about working with film in a direct, material way. This workshop illustrates how to hand process black and white reversal Super or Standard (Regular) 8mm film / 16mm film. The workshop covers loading a tank, the chemicals required for hand processing and how they are mixed, times and stages for processing, useful information on where to purchase chemicals, and tips and hints to achieve interesting processing effects such as pushing and pulling film. The workshop will be particularly useful to anyone who is interested in shooting the new standard 8mm stocks available in b/w as well as seasoned users of formats such as Tri X or Plus X. Attendance of this workshop or the Super 8 colour shooting and hand processing one is essential for anyone wishing to use no.w.here’s Lomo processing tanks. Please note you should bring a finished roll of either Tri X or Plus X film in either Super 8 or 16mm with you to process on the course. Due to the nature of hand processing this should not be footage which is irreplaceable.
