Super 8 workshop at Bradford International Film Festival this April!

Cherry Kino is running a two-day Super8 filmmaking workshop as part of the Bradford International Film Festival on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th April from 10am at the National Media Museum in Bradford! There are 5 places currently available (the course accommodates 8 people in total), so if you'd like to book,

Participants will use top end Super8 cameras to film out and about in the cinematographic city of Bradford, learning tips and tricks for multiple different ways to use the cameras, including time lapse, slow motion filming and long exposures. We will take a look at how other artists have used the medium, and try our hand at some hand-painting on Super8 film, and we will cover all the stocks and resources currently available to the Super8 filmmaker. Participants will learn how to hand-process their own film in a fantastic DIY method that makes Super8 film processing fun, very economical, and a social occasion! The finished reels will be transferred to a digital format using a DIY telecine method, to show how it can be done at home, and participants will take home their original Super8 reel. A DVD of the films will be sent to all participants shortly after the end of the workshop.

The cost of the workshop is £80 in total for the two days, and includes all materials and use of all equipment. To book, please email:
Early booking is recommended, as three places have been taken and there are 5 left at the time of writing this post!

Looking forward to it! Also check out BIFF's programme - get yourself to the cinema in Bradford this April!

Some more news too...
Cherry Kino was involved with the Yorkshire Psychedelia night on Saturday, a gig with musicians Harry, Violaine, Emi and Mark improvising and me (Martha) doing the visuals, and Ashtray Navigations played, as well as The Family Elan - it was a great night at Patrick Studios, and a lot of fun! The picture below is from the triple Super 8 projector performance I did, and the one below that is the lovely Violaine Bergoin who was a musician on the night, and a glamorous DIY bar girl! She also designed the 'Yorkshire Psychedelia' poster that is on the wall behind her.

Also, Cherry Kino helped the artist Jacob Everett make a stop-motion Super8 film of himself doing a large portrait over 2 days, which you can see here - good work Jacob!

And, the Cherry Kino 8-week Super8 Courses are now finished! Some wonderful films have been created, and you will get the chance to see them at the end of April at a free screening at Patrick Studios, and also at the 'Wunder Nacht' event during the Saltaire Arts Trail!
