This mix of a virtual interactive workshop and hands on film challenge, is an opportunity to step back into another age of moving image production before a time of almost infinite capture and instant playback. Participants will experience the creative possibilities of working within the limitations of shooting an in-camera edited single roll of analogue Super 8 film and the beauty of the hand processed image using a safe homemade photochemistry in your own bathroom.
*All masterclass workshops will be online delivery through Zoom*
Jason Asbell loves the art of cinema and has a special fondness for the physical hands-on approach of hand-processed Super 8 and 16mm film. He is a graduate of the Simon Fraser University film program and has had his experimental work screened internationally in festivals. Aside from filmmaking, Jason is an exhibitor and educator of film through his role as programming director of The Civic Theatre and regular instructor/mentor for the Senior Director's seat (14-18 year olds) of Watershed's summer film production camps. Creator of the 24-hr Super 8 Youth Film Challenge, and the regional Craft Brews of the Columbia Basin Film Competition and touring film festival, he is committed to fostering a vibrant local film community.
Many thanks to our funders, Columbia Basin Trust and Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, for making this all possible.
