A week-long intensive on Orcas Island, Washington
Spend a week on beautiful Orcas Island, WA investigating celluloid film as a physical medium, learning to make your own emulsion, exploring various hand-processing techniques, and pushing the creative and aesthetic limits of the handmade filmmaking process from start to finish. This place is located right at the water's edge - and whether you choose to camp in the great outdoors or take advantage of limited indoor accommodations indoors, the setting is an inspirational backdrop for an intensive immersion in all aspects of filmmaking. The week will also include a filmmaking excursion to uninhabited Sucia Island, designated as a Washington State Park. All materials are provided, and participants will have access to conventional and underwater filmmaking equipment, as well as darkroom and printing facilities.
