Tinting and toning expand the creative boundaries of black and white analogue film. By employing a range of different metals and dyes, filmmakers can imbue their prints with luscious blue, brown, burgundy and red tints and tones. Furthermore, tinting and toning can also dramatically improve the archival stability of film.

In this hands-on workshop, we will cover the different available toners (both pre-packaged and custom-mixed) and how to use them safely in the darkroom. Each participant will get the opportunity to tone film. The workshop is accessible and no previous knowledge of film techniques or technology is required.

Price of workshop includes all materials. Attendees are welcome to bring their own processed black and white print film for toning, but leave precious originals at home!

Duration: 3 hours

The dynamic between Director and DOP plays a crucial role in maximizing a script’s visual potential. Directors and DOPs are each responsible for powerful forms of visioning that must be integrated for efficient and effective production, and knowing how to negotiate this integration is an essential professional tool for each individual in one of these roles.

Directors oversee the coherence of complex elements during production and a dependable dynamic with the DOP is a keystone in this structure. The DOP’s artistic vision and technical skill are essential ingredients to success, but getting the best results out of available resources and conditions goes deeper, requiring sensitivity to the bigger picture behind each scene, and to the unique interpretation each actor can bring to a performance.

Join Director Marshall Axani and Director of Photography Naim Sutherland, as they discuss the working relationship that has brought them through three award winning short films, Crazy8s The Vessel (2012), Hot Shots Shorts Winner and winner of 13 Leo Awards Anxious Oswald Greene (2013), Cold Reading Series and Harold Greenberg Shorts to Features winner Mina.Minerva (2014) and into their first feature film together, The Canon (2017), supported by the Telefilm Microbudget Production Program.


In this workshop, participants will:

* Examine elements that make the distinctive look and feel of each film, such as colour palette, lighting, lensing and camera movement, and how these can communicate the emotional subtext to the audience. * Discuss how to manage a 'visual image system' by utilizing elements like hair, makeup, and wardrobe. * Learn what to look for when hiring a DOP (Directors), and what to bring to interviews (DOPs). * Watch and participate while Naim and Marshall unpack the visual elements of their Telefilm feature.

In this intensive workshop, participants will study core dance-film methods. Working through diverse exemplary film scenes, and through hands-on practice with camera, lights and a dancer, the following principles will be addressed:
* Filming dance choreographed for stage often fails, since the stage has vastly different needs than film * Film cuts the world into angles, while stage dance is conceived as a continuum from a single angle * Time and space are more compressed on film than on stage * Even the body of the solo dancer struggles with the camera, its full vertical shape resisting the horizontal frame * To make true dance film, choreographers must understand the frame and directors must learn the kinetics of dance * Going from stage to screen starts with choreographing and lighting shot-by-shot, specifically for the camera Teaching will include:
* Composition and lighting within the frame * Choosing angles and working within them * Cutting as choreography * Rhythmic and overtonal montage * Creative use of discontinuous and non-matching action * Solving non-stage location challenges * Improvisational methods About the Instructor

Daniel Conrad’s dance films have screened at numerous festivals including Locarno, Montréal World, London Int'l, Hamburg Kurzfilm, Valladolid, Seattle Int'l (Best of Fest Shorts), New York Dance on Camera (2 Silver Awards), Golden Prague (Dagmar & Vaclav Havel Prize), Toronto Moving Pictures (Audience Choice Award), Dance Camera West (Los Angeles), Vancouver Int'l, and many more. His work has been purchased by PBS, the CBC, ZDF, CFCF, SCN, TVE, Ovation, ARTV, Knowledge, Bravo, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Duration: 7 hours, including 1 hour lunch break


In this full-day workshop, participants will learn how to create new moving-image compositions by duplicating and manipulating existing still images and motion pictures from a variety of formats.

We will discuss re-photography techniques and learn how to use a 16mm Bolex film camera with high contrast black and white film, along with a simple data or film projector, to create multi-field split-screen effects.

Participants are invited to bring an analogue or digital still image, a short piece of 16mm film or a digital video, which we will use as the basis for a split-screen re-photography composition. We will hand-process the material and the resulting 16mm film will be projected at the end of the class.

Frank's Cock
Canada 1993. Dir: Mike Hoolboom. 8 min. 16mm

In partnership with Cineworks, The Cinematheque presents Frank's Cock – Mike Hoolboom's dazzling, dangerous, split-screen assault on love and AIDS, juxtaposing Madonna's "Erotica," sex-ed films and gay porn with a tour de force monologue by actor Callum Keith Rennie (Hard Core Logo, Due South), then an unknown. Produced by Cineworks, the film won Best Canadian Short, TIFF 1994. Hoolboom is a former Cineworks member and a recipient of the Governor General's Award in 2017 – Canada's highest order of artistic recognition for lifetime contributions to the arts.


Videodrome
Canada 1983. Dir: David Cronenberg. 87 min. 35mm

The Cinematheque presents David Cronenberg's most influential and conceptually ingenious film. James Woods stars as Max Renn, owner of a sleazy Toronto cable-TV channel. Discovering mysterious satellite transmissions of graphic, plotless sexual violence, Max figures it's the perfect thing to boost his stations' ratings - and soon finds himself enmeshed in a sinister global conspiracy to control minds. Deborah Harry co-stars as a sadomasochistic psychiatrist. Max's transformation into a flesh-and-blood VCR is one of the quintessential representations of body horror, and of the fusion of man and machine, in Cronenberg. Andy Warhol described Videodrome as " A Clockwork Orange of the 80s." Truly visionary!

This double bill forms part of The Cinematheque's Canada on Screen program –– a year-long initiative celebrating Canada’s sesquicentennial of confederation, through its rich cinematic heritage.
