HAND PAINTING, and other surprises...

Today we watched lots of hand painted films on 16mm--one by Jenn Reeves, one by Stan Brakhage, and ones of our very own, each one looped on the projector so we could really watch the rhythms. Watercolors ruled the day, Jon had some fancy toothbrush tricks up his sleeve, Josh experimented with handscratched optical sound, and Theo thickened the plot with goache, see here:

One place to look for inspiration is the great "RECIPES FOR DISASTER: a handmade cookbooklet" independently published collective project edited by filmmaker Helen Hill.

Plus a big inspiration for this class blog is the sixbyone blog out of Wilmington North Carolina, props to NC, thanks guys! We did the magazine transfer project too, yes in the last fifteen minutes of class we made a little collective film from scratch, so fun!!

Cool! Nice work. Glad we could serve as inspiration. David Gatten was the inspiration for bringing the magazine transfer technique to UNC Wilmington.

Hello to our fellow cameraless filmmakers in the West from the NC!
