Explore conceptual editing techniques using archival 16mm footage transferred to digital to create a short collage project. The workshop will be led by visiting artist Sydney Southam, who joins us from Vancouver, BC where she is a visual artist, filmmaker, performance artist, and professional pole dancer who frequently utilizes archival 16mm film in her projects to explore themes of nostalgia, death, memory, and identity. Participants will hear from Southam about her process and how she develops concepts through the cataloguing and editing of found footage and then mining the Film Center’s collection of digitally transferred 16mm footage, will have the chance to create a work on their own or in small groups.

This is an intermediate-level workshop. Participants must already be comfortable with the basics of digital editing software (either Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere). Participants should also bring a Mac-formatted external hard drive to save their projects. Tuition includes access to the Film Center Edit Lab for up to one week after workshop date.

Pre-requisites: Digital Editing (Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere) or equivalent
