This course teaches alternative and experimental methods of 16mm film production including camera-less techniques, direct animation, self-processing, pinhole photography, and contact printing. Students will complete a series of daily short writing assignments, individual and collaborative 16mm filmmaking assignments, as well as a final individual project. Daily screenings and critical readings will introduce students to a wide range of approaches to the moving image. This course will require students to complete extensive individual work outside of class. This course is highly recommended for those students who have completed HACU-210 Film Workshop I, and wish to continue their work with 16mm filmmaking, however it is not a required prerequisite. Prerequisite courses include a 100-level course in media art.

Additional Info:

You shouldn’t be looking at this as a continuity. Film frames are hieroglyphs, even when they look like actuality. You should think of the individual frame, always, as a glyph, and then you’ll understand what cinema is about. 

–Harry Smith


It is art and myth that reflect our identity, our process, and our history. It is the path of the poet we follow: lonely tracks in the black snowy places of memory and an unknown horizon. 

-Bruce Baillie
