Using a historic hand cranked 35mm camera, lovingly called the lunchbox, this workshop will examine the film making strategies and technologies during the time of Lumière and early Cinema. Workshop participants will create a single shot “Lumière/ vérité reel” and then learn to process, print, tone and project the final result. The workshop will focus on demonstration and discussion of the various chemical and mechanical processes such as: negative vs reversal processing, tinting and toning and standard b/w cine development. All experience levels welcome!

Eric Stewart is a multimedia artist and educator. Working predominantly with 16mm film his artistic practice invokes photochemical and darkroom processes to investigate landscape, place and cultural identity in the American West.
