Cinestar partners Mayes Creative are offering a unique three day creative film making workshop with visiting artist Robert Schaller, responding to the dark skies, bright stars, neolithic sites and landscape of Penwith. Join us to learn more about ways of working spontaneously with physical film.
Robert Schaller is the founder of The Handmade Film Institute based in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains is an expert in leading Wilderness film making courses. During this weekend you will experience working out on the moors with a portable darkroom and plenty of opportunity to learn and extend your 16/8mm film making practice. Robert will share DIY techniques and approaches including eco-processing both negative and reversal film. The weekend will finish with a screening on the moors under the stars. This is an opportunity for artists filmmakers to reinvigorate your filmmaking practice, make a step change in your ways of working and share our experiences of working with physical film.
To encourage you to get booking, we are offering a limited number of Early Bird discounted tickets at 20% off (individual/institution).
Limited shared accommodation is also available at Cott Valley YHA - this needs to be booked with us ASAP as we can only hold these places for a short time (please email us on bookings@ for details).
This workshop offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in an amazing landscape - Tregeseal Stone Circle is 15 minutes' walk from our workshop base in the beautiful Cot Valley, Cornwall – using it as inspiration for your creative practice.
This workshop is offered by Mayes Creative, with support from Cinestar, as part of their Creative Dark Skies: Bright Stars programme, kindly supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, Feast and Arts Council England.
