Coming up this Friday ..............
Camera-less filmmaking workshop: experiments with sound and image making and perception
What happens when what we draw is transformed by a machine to become a fleeting image – is this still our mark? When we understand what changes in projection can we develop a skill so that we have some control over the experience of the viewer? We will also explore what happens when we introduce sound with the hand drawn moving image, noticing how we instinctively will sound and image to fall into sync through our innate propensity to entrain our perception. We will consider sound/image making and sound/image perception as an integrated, embodied and interactive process.
At the end of this workshop we hope that we will have isolated some of the things that we do when we draw – process, perception and reflection - in a way that liberates the idea of drawing from making something that looks like something else.
Drawing on film is lead by artist Jacqui Knight and cognitive psychologist Sue Denham, with technical support by Guy Edmonds and Rupert Allen
Call for interest in Cinestar Film Lab
We're putting out a call for people who are interested in supporting our Cinestar artist film lab in Cornwall. We currently have a Steenbeck (generously donated by David Wilkinson at GenevaStopFilms) at Back Lane West, Redruth and we're in the final stages of making a functioning darkroom/useable lab space and turning the Steenbeck into a contact printer (it can also be used for editing as normal). But we need help! If you would like to make use of this facility and help us get it ready to use, please get in touch and we will make a Cinestar sub-list so that we can take this collective resource further. We will start with a meeting in the lab space to work out what we need to do to get things going. Once the space is working, we are keen to offer opportunities for everyone to make the most of it.
Please send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to join our lab list.

Cinestar contributed to the delivery of workshops at the International film labs meeting in Nantes, France in July. With Jo leading a successful research session in eco-reversal processing. This event brought together almost 50 artists film labs, from five continents, for a week of exchange and discussions about the state of the art of film.
We were overwhelmed by seven incredible screenings curated by international programmers from the network, an evening of project presentations and an open barbecue, a « Bac à sable afternoon with public workshops.
