Free youth workshop: Learn to shoot and process Super8 film with artist Nisha Platzer!

This two-day workshop introduces you to Super8 film. You’ll learn about this unique format, then create a short black-and-white film by shooting and processing your own. That’s right! You’ll learn how to:

  • operate handheld super8 film cameras!
  • expose photo film to light rays!
  • hand-process the film in photochemicals

Arrive with an idea, or experiment with form and visuals to create an original film. One roll of black & white reversal film per team.

The final films will be screened Sunday night, so invite your friends and family!
