Experimenta Make Sense:
Movement and Film Workshop

Sat 6 Mar 2021, 11AM – 3PM

BOOK NOW

In this introduction to slow motion in moving image, workshop participants are guided through a range of hands-on techniques to address how slow motion cinema can be used to explore time, movement and forces. Michele Barker and Anna Munster have collaborated for over twenty years focusing on experimental cinema and responsive media environments as a way of exploring perception, embodiment and movement.

Join the artists in this workshop designed to explore some of these ideas and techniques as seen in their most recent work ‘pull’, presented as part of the Experimenta Make Sense exhibition.

Participants will be guided through an introduction to slow motion in moving image and changes to time in accompanying audio. They will be provided with a range of hands-on techniques to address how slow motion cinema can be used to explore time, movement and forces – both human and beyond. The workshop will also experiment with audio recording and its relation to slow motion visuals.

This workshop is part of Upstream festival
