In this one-day workshop, students received all the tools, resources, and instruction necessary to shoot, develop, and screen their collective work on 16mm color reversal film. We went over the functions of the Bolex Rex-5 camera, collectively shot 200’ of film, learned basic film chemistry, mixed our solutions, took the film through the color reversal process, and finally, screened our work. Students were also invited to bring along 35mm color reversal still film to process or shoot during the workshop. All equipment, film stock, chemicals, and safety gear was provided by Big Mama.

This film was created by participants: Eddie Austin, Colwyn Jones, Taryn Jones, Carly Siciliano, and Louis Sarris
