Mobileskino Workshop: Do8Yourself

Mobileskino returns to (S8), and this time with workshop that emerges from their latest projecto, Do8Yourself, where we will learn to create our own strips of 16mm film from digital material. The work of this group from Basel, Switzerland – where filmmakers, technicians, animators and sound artists meet- is guided by research and play about analog cinema and the possible ways of combining this technology with a thousand mechanical, electronic and digital devices. A work that blends digital technology with the audiovisual experiments of the beginnings of cinema in the nineteenth century, a conjunction that gives rise to Do8Yourself, a call to ingenuity and self-sufficiency.

The workshop is divided into two work sessions and a public screening. In the two work sessions the artists will teach the process and explain in detail how it works. The videos of each participant will be printed frame by frame in acetate, then the strips of material will be cut and perforated to become 16mm films and be screened. A soundtrack will be created as well, and the transferred to analog format. The final result will be edited as a film that will be seen on Sunday in a screening open to the public, where a string-powered projector and also a string-powered vinyl audio player will be used.
