Night 06 of the MONO NO AWARE residency at Whammy!
This offering is designed for persons who have recently purchased a used Super 8mm camera OR for those who need to test their old camera that has not been used in some time.
Bring your camera down to WHAMMY! We'll identify the make and model, speak to the strengths of the design and explore its functions. Then we’ll talk about proper care, we’ll provide the tools necessary to clean the camera body, battery compartment and lens. We’ll open a roll of Super 8mm film so that each participant can film a title card / test. We’ll then develop the film together and project the results to be sure the camera is operational.
You will walk away knowing your camera insideout and know 100% without a doubt that it is working (or not) +PLUS+ at the conclusion we’ll also provide a list of local labs for developing and post services. Two workshops in one as we’ll also go over hand developing BWN film.
