Join our masterclass to shoot actual film on Super 8 and learn how to develop it yourself using washing soda, vitamin C and coffee. Participants will be lent Super 8 cine-cameras and given an hour to shoot footage... documentary, drama, silent comedy, experimental; the choice is yours! Then using household items and a few darkroom chemicals, workshop leader Ben Slotover will show participants how to develop the Super 8 film themselves. Finally the films will be dried, spooled and projected for that rare treat – same day viewing of freshly shot film footage! There will be a wide variety of Super 8 cameras to choose from, catering to all levels of expertise.
