The Art of Film Projections w/ Kemi Craig
June 30, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$30 – $60
30 June 2018
Film doesn’t always need to be shown on a big screen, or even on a screen at all! The Art of Film Projections will explore the world, and art, of film projection outside of traditional mediums. Instructor Kemi Craig, with assistant Toni Hall, aims to encourage filmmakers to think creatively about how their work will be displayed, and to come up with innovative and/or unconventional showcase techniques.
This workshop will be a split between an “artists talk” and a hands on workshop, as the class will work together to create a video collage involving DIY mini projectors for a smart phone or camera. Materials will be included (but bring your own phone!).

An American of African descent born outside of Washington DC and raised in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, her work centers on futures for raced and gendered bodies. Working through Super 8, 16mm film, and cellphone video Craig couples performance with devices of looking to interrogate the simultaneous experiences of past, present and future.
