The Wabi-Sabi in Super 8

• Workshop May 2012 in Toronto, Canada! (I was Artist In Residence @ L.I.F.T.!)


This summer I was Artist in Residence in Toronto, Canada at L.I.F.T.
(Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto)!

This is what they say about themselves:

The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is an artist-run charitable organization dedicated to facilitating excellence in the moving image through media arts education and production resources. LIFT exists to provide support and encouragement for independent filmmakers and artists through affordable access to production, post-production and exhibition equipment; professional and creative development; workshops and courses; commissioning and exhibitions; artist-residencies; and a variety of other services. Founded in 1981 by a small collective, LIFT has since grown to become one of the foremost centres of its kind globally.

The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto will be the primary community hub for film-related practices and will facilitate the sustainability and production of media art on a local, national and international level.

LIFT is a member-driven non-profit organization that provides affordable access to equipment, education and space for those who want to make films, out of a passion for, and commitment to, the practice of filmmaking.

In short words: passion for film as well as devotion to practicing!

I gave two workshops:
1. Hand processing black & white Super 8 films in Caffenol (instant coffee, vitamin c, washing-soda)
2. “The Ambassadors Of Coincidence“: a city walk game, finding beauty in banality, documenting with super 8.
