Dermot Wilson: Master Class and Workshop- Found Film and Digitization Processes

LOMAA is pleased to host artist Dermot Wilson as the fourth participant in its Visiting Artist Program. During his stay Wilson, based in North Bay ON, will hold a Master Class and Workshop focusing on found footage and digitization processes.

Master Class and Workshop:
Found Film and Digitization Processes-
Some Practical Methods for Media Artists and Pop Cultural Archeologists

Starting with the history of found footage in film and video works, and moving into his own practice, Dermot Wilson will host a talk and hands-on workshop geared at introducing media artists to the exciting art of found footage. Participants will be asked to bring found analog footage (8mm, 16mm, Hi8, VHS etc.) or digital footage and will learn how to manipulate and convert their findings to work towards the creation of a final video. A public screening of the realized projects will be held in early 2015. Topics to be covered in the class include: analog manipulation, analog to digital conversion, sourcing digital found footage, editing techniques, project planning and sound/video interaction.

Participants will need rudimentary digital video editing knowledge, a laptop with editing software (LOMAA may be able to provide a limited amount of computers in special circumstances) and a portable digital hard drive.

Please email with questions or to reserve a spot because space is limited.
