What you'll do

Get ready to get hands on! I'll show you the basics of analog camera operation & loading, as well as a brief history of celluloid cinema. We'll spend some time learning cinematography fundamentals before heading outside and exposing 50 feet of Tri-X (black & white) Super 8 film around downtown Portland. When we return, I'll show you how to hand process your film step by step. We'll watch your freshly developed film that day on an analog projector! *Digital copy of your footage is available for an additional $15 fee with a 1-week turnaround. Don't see a date listed that works for you? Send me a message - I can be flexible :)
