In this one-day workshop, students received all the tools, resources, and instruction necessary to shoot, develop, and screen their collective work on 16mm black & white reversal film. We went over the functions of the Bolex Rex-5 camera, collectively shot 100’ of film, learned basic film chemistry, mixed our solutions, took the film through the reversal process, and finally, screened our work. All equipment, film stock, chemicals, and safety gear was provided by Big Mama.

An informational syllabus and HD video transfer of the finished film was also provided to assist students in replicating this process at home and sharing their work.
