A one day workshop which explores the possibilities inherent in 16mm projection apparatus.
Expanded cinema luminary Greg Pope will explain the thinking and techniques in his film performance events. Starting with the idea of creating with the projector rather than the camera. Stripping down the act of producing live sound and image to an essential minimum, we will assemble a brutalist projection orchestra for a once-only multi-projection performed composition using junked and looped film, contact mics, needles, spikes, hobby grinders and old guitar pick-ups.
Greg Pope (UK/Norway)
After dabbling in punk rock bands and absurdist performance, Greg Pope founded Brighton-based Super 8 film collective Situation Cinema (Brighton 1986) and afterwards Loophole Cinema (London, 1989). Using multiple projection technologies Loophole Cinema created numerous live events around Europe, culminating in the self-produced International Symposium of Shadows in London in 1996.
Working collaboratively and individually, Pope has made video installations, live art pieces and single screen film works since 1996. Recent works include live cinema performance pieces Light Trap and Cipher Screen, as well as 35mm film/slide productions.
