Two leading avant-garde animators, Norman McLaren and Len Lye, made camera-less films back in the 1930s, and today, 80 years later, this elementary film-making technique continues to captivate creators and surprise audiences with its attractive results.
In this workshop led by Steven Woloshen, we will explore the multiple techniques of camera-less filmmaking and discover new ones along the way. Participants will be encouraged to choose their materials and tools for scratch, paint and collage techniques directly onto the surface of clear leader, black leader or previously shot material. We also look at popular methods of synchronising soundtracks and digitising hand-made films. The result can be viewed with a 35mm Moviola.
