Part two: You will work in the darkroom and learn about the various ways of contact printing, where images of the first part are used as source material, to create new images. We will work with black-and-white film. This specific material makes it possible to work in red safety light. Part two incorporates the uses (and abuses) of film print materials, development processes and chemistry, but also specific Filmwerkplaats possibilities as creating an optical soundtrack, 16mm flatbed editing, telecine and the use of our 16mm projectors.

The workshop will take place in WORM’s own filmlab. The Filmwerkplaats is equipped to facilitate individual artists throughout the production process of their films. Its possible to go from unexposed filmstock to final exhibition print without having to rely on commercial labs or rental companies.
