no.w.here's film resources are not available anywhere else in the UK. As an artist run project, no.w.here creates a space for innovation in the film medium, allowing artists and filmmakers to experiment with production modes and chemical processes not possible via commercial labs.
We have an SD quality standard 16mm telecine machine for artists who wish to shoot on film and then edit digitally. Innovation in our existing equipment such as the optical printer enables artists to use the resources beyond their original design and purpose. Artists working in the moving image are enabled to explore new potentials to take their work in new directions. In conjunction with the resources we run a regular series of workshops whereby experienced artists impart their knowledge and share their ideas and skills about the film form. This dialogue between ideas, access, resources and the creation of new work in turn leads to new ways of using the equipment.
Film Equipment, Loop Machines and Processing
B&W Film Processing by Machine
no.w.here's black & white Calder 16mm processor ran as a service for artists and filmmakers for 10 years. Over the decade the economy of machine processing became more and more precarious, due to rising prices of film stock, and the increasing necessary investments in time and money to keep the machine in a good state. The combination of minimal fees, time consuming administration and maintenance, and heavy responsibility towards filmmakers made it impossible to keep it going.
As a conclusion, we decided to stop providing this as a service.
UPDATE: A small artist run business providing a 16mm B&W processing and printing service has been set up by Bea Haut and Karel Doing. Film in Process is located at the University of East London, within the Fine Art Department's 16mm facility. Film in Process aims to keep black and white 16mm film as an affordable medium for artists and students in London and the UK. For more information please see: filminprocess.com

Additional stock recommended by no.w.here:
- UPDATE JAN 2015 - As you probably know we are constantly looking at the costs of film stock - the global financial crisis caused a great increase in the costs of silver and other metals, which has an impact on the costs of black and white motion picture film.
As a result of this we have decided to begin purchasing Orwo film products. This is mainly because Orwo's future commitment to film production seems assured, a regular supply to London is guaranteed, and that we are informed in good time about potential price rises should they occur.
no.w.here will be the sole London stockist of Orwo motion picture products.
At present we sell:
ORWO black & white negative camera film UN 54: ORWO Universal Negative Film UN 54 is a panchromatic medium speed black-and-white negative camera film for both outdoor and indoor usage. According to the ORWO Instruction 4185 the UN 54 film can be processed as black and white reversal film and be used to produce direct positives. This stock has a similar characteristic to Kodak's discontinued Plus X negative film.
This stock is only available in 400ft rolls. no.w.here sells spools and boxes for re-spooling film in the darkroom via our online shop.
