Expanded Cinema Workshop

Expanded Cinema: Apparatus and Methodology
hosted by Alex MacKenzie

Sunday, July 30th 2023
2:30 PM – 6:30 PM

Explore the original engine of expanded cinema, the projector. Learn how to work with 16mm projection devices to allow an expansion of their potential and a re-purposing of their function. Light, lens, focal plane, film gate, speed, shutter, motor, bulb, and screen will all be examined with live examples and an up-close and hands-on approach.
Try out various techniques and gain a better understanding of how these elements work both separately and in tandem for a demystification of the primary instrument of the motion picture.
Workshop will be held in English.
