Students will also have the opportunity to learn about do-it-yourself film transfers and options in editing.
Instructor Bio: Roger D. Wilson is an experimental film scientist who lives in Ottawa. Roger’s artistic practice begins and ends with film, super 8mm, 16mm and 35mm formats; his need to continuously investigate the filmmaking process has lead him to discover innovative experimental film processes. He creates his films using techniques such as pixilation, time-lapse photography, hand processing and cameraless animation. Roger is known for his technique of manipulating film emulsion prior to photographing images. He treats his unexposed film stock to processes that alter the films emulsion. He has buried black and white film in soil, bathed it in baking soda, berg colour toner, household bleach and photographic bleach all before photographing images. Roger also has a passion for sharing his knowledge of the filmmaking process with others and strives to inspire them to begin their own film experimentations so they too can create their own unique pieces of moving art.
