About your host

I am an Italian filmmaker specialising in silent film making. In contrast to a world dominated by digital technology, I believe film is very much alive and kicking!

What we’ll do

You will go through the basics of how to run a 16mm silent camera and to shoot 50feet of 16mm film (about 90 seconds of footage): you will receive an insightful tutorial on how to master a 60 year old technology, learning to film live action and even stop motion animation. You will use black and white negative stock for an authentic silent cinema look!
