Meeting via live video
Why use toxic chemistry to develop your Super 8, 8mm, 16mm or 35mm film when you can get fantastic results with ingredients from your own garden and kitchen?
In this one-day workshop, led by Lisa Marr and Paolo Davanzo of Echo Park Film Center, participants will learn how to use beer, coffee, flowers and other organic materials to make their own eco-friendly developers for photographic and motion-picture film. A companion workshop to Kitchen Pot Alchemy: Beer-making for Filmmakers (happening November 20th), this workshop includes a brief discussion on the history and chemistry of eco-processing, helpful hints for setting up a processing lab at home, and step-by-step instructions on your own tasty organic cinematic brews. DIY Echo Eco textbook included!
Note: The Kitchen Pot Alchemy workshop is not a pre-requisite to the Eco-Brew workshop. You can sign up for either one or both.
