Hand processing fosters a particularly intimate understanding of film as a material object and can produce a variety of effects that cannot be achieved by professional lab services. In this one-day workshop, you will be given all of the information necessary to start your own home operation. We will go over key chemical reactions, mix our own chemistry, and each student will take a 100’ roll of film through each stage of the reversal process. All chemicals and equipment will be provided. Films will be ready to screen at the end of the session.  Finished projects will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our screening party.

INCLUDES:  All chemistry, development equipment, access to processing facilities and instruction packet. Participants should bring an exposed roll of film (2 X S8 MM 50' cartridges, 1 X 16MM daylight spool, 2 X 35MM Still photos, or 1 X 120 roll) . HD video transfer of film by Metro Post, online hosting of finished film, local & international film festival entry waivers and inclusion in the MONO workshop screening party.
