Super 8 Hand Painted Collective Film Workshop

Join artist Martha Jurksaitis in a great collective creative project where we’ll all work on a hand-painted abstract film using techniques such as inking, scratching, drawing using acrylic inks, sharpies, glitters and nail varnishes.

Martha will introduce you to the Super 8 format and its history, including showing you some examples on her Super 8 projector before you all get on creating the film and record sound for it.

You can book on any of the three sessions during the day.  The film you all created will then be screened at 18:00 in the event space. Come back and watch your masterpiece altogether, no booking necessary for the screening.

About Martha Jurksaitis 

Martha Jurksaitis is an all-analogue artist filmmaker and photographer informed by kaleidoscopes, alchemy, nature, translucent colours, rituals, dreams, and intuition. She works with Super 8 and 16mm film and other analogue photographic formats in a truly artisanal way; hand processing her work and hand editing most of the time, using an old guillotine splicer, only digitising when the film is almost complete.
She makes films that are deeply sensual and have been shown all over the world . After taking a break from her career to have her son, she is returning full time to making artist films, with a vengeance!
Her latest film Xanat is a commission for PUSH Festival and screening as part of Spit That Out on Sat 28 Jan. 15:30
