Let’s make an experimental cameraless 16mm collective abstract animation short by direct manipulation of film, through scratching, puncturing, collaging, painting or whatever. We will also create and perform an improvised soundtrack.

No previous art, film or musical experience required. All materials and support will be provided. Expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

The day will be divided in three sessions plus the final performance.

Approximate schedule:

15:00: Brief introduction to the concept of direct animation in 16mm followed by individual experimentation with materials.

16:00: Collaborative work, let’s make an animation short film together making use of the knowledge achieved during the first part of the day.

17:00: Once the film is done we will project it and work on an improvised soundtrack to be played with found objects, musical instruments and/or parts of our body.

18:00: Final performance, projection of the film while playing the soundtrack.

End of day.

There will be time for breaks in between sessions and during each session.
