Film Foraging: 16mm Filmmaking Workshop and Field Shoot

  • AgX Film Collective - Building 18, 2nd Floor 144 Moody Street Waltham, MA, 02453 United States (map)

Learn the art of non sync 16mm film making with AGX film collective, and help create a short film at the Waltham Land Trust’s afternoon foraging expedition at Hardy Pond in Waltham, MA.

At the AgX space in downtown Waltham, participants will learn to shoot 16mm films, basic sound recording techniques and basic editing techniques.  

Following instruction on the equipment, we will break into groups and create 4 short films combining color and black and white film and field audio at the Waltham Land Trust Hardy Pond Foraging Expedition.

Participants will regroup one week later to edit the film and audio material, creating four finished pieces.

This workshop is supported in part by a grant from the Waltham Cultural Coucil, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Coucil, a state agency.
