Cameras on sticks: Tool making for film making
A workshop with sixth-form art students.
Acland Burghley, London 2012

I designed this workshop which was about the tools and the processes behind making a film. During the day I introduced examples with the students and questioned how filmed images have been constructed. We accessed how the camera and the screen changes the experience of what we see, we experimented with making our own camera rigs and made lots of experimental films.

The Cameras on sticks project was selected by El Ultimo Grito as part of an exhibition La trastienda at LABoral in Gijon in 2013. Here a version of a camera rig was made available via an opensource platform. Instructions and digital files to produce the rigs were downloadable and the filmed outcomes available to share.
