A D.I.Y. Approach to Cinema Kris Limbach proposes to go over his entire visual creative process with attendees, from filming and developing footage to transforming and destroying it.
The material that is filmed during the workshop will be developed together with participants using Kris Limbach’s personal processing techniques which follows the lines of d.i.y. punk aesthetics, direct film and avant-garde film in the tradition of Jonas Mekas, Dietmar Brehm and Stan Brakhage.
He will show participants expanded cinema techniques including improvising with the projector’s light and speed as well as burning the film to achieve visible chemical transformation.
Later on the participants will get a brief introduction into open source video and sound editing via kdenlive, ardour and similar tools.
Each person will create his/her own improvised piece of a visual cadavre exquis.
