Filmmaker Philip Warnell and cinematographers David Raedeker and Nick Gordon Smith discuss the use of 16mm film in their practices in this workshop presented as part of In Production.
Defying expectations about the future of the moving image, light-sensitive film continues to be utilised throughout independent and commercial filmmaking. This event explores various approaches to 16 mm film, raising and answering practical questions about the methods, benefits and risks of using film on shoots. The workshop will be followed by an audience Q&A and discussion.
