PREREQUISITE FOR 16MM DOGME PRODUCTION CHALLENGE 2018!
The Bolex camera is one of IFCO’s most popular and versatile 16mm cameras. The Bolex has numerous camera speeds, from 8fps right up to 64fps; it also has single frame capabilities. The camera can also be used to make in-camera fades, dissolves and double exposures. This camera is great for handheld filming; it is very light and easy to manoeuvre. Each participant will get sufficient time to load the camera, try out different lenses and experiment with the camera’s features.
Topics to be discussed:
– operational controls;
– prepping and cleaning the camera;
– film loading procedures;
– choosing the right lens;
– handheld filming;
– proper exposure compensations for slow speed and high speed filming;
– prepping camera for multiple exposures.
Rick Hancox is an important figure in the development of experimental film in Canada – both for his influence and his filmmaking. He received a BA in English from the University of Prince Edward Island and a Masters in Film and Photography from Ohio University. Hancox creates finely crafted experimental documentaries that fuse personal landscapes with issues of time, memory and history. From 1973-1985 he taught at Sheridan Collage, where he and colleague Jeffery Paull were instrumental in shaping the sensibilities of a new generation of filmmakers. Arguably, the trend toward personal cinema and experimental documentary in 1980’s Canadian cinema began with Hancox, thus indirectly establishing what has come to be known as The Escarpment School. In 1986 Hancox joined the Communication Studies department at Concordia University where he continues to teach today.
