Mock Up On Mu & Craig Baldwin @ The NWFF
As an ex-Seattle person, I forgot to mention that Craig Baldwin will be appearing at two screenings of Mock Up On Mu , Friday and Saturday at the NWFF. Both screenings are at 8pm.
In addition, Baldwin will be hosting Flix Remix: A Found Footage Workshop Saturday, from 1:00-4:30pm. The class is described thusly:
Put your hands on celluloid and experience found footage filmmaking, the ultimate form of "green" production! Drawing on his vast experience as a found footage guru, Craig Baldwin will discuss the genre's influence on alternative cinema, screening clips from his found footage classics, TRIBULATION 99, SONIC OUTLAWS and other works. The creative and critical methods of working with archival film prints will be demonstrated through hands-on activities. Using projectors, rewinds, viewers, splicers and an optical-sound reader, participants will compose "re-purposed" cine-poems, with either the extant soundtrack(s), or set against some other audio source (bring your own CD). Uncanny, even anomalous 16mm industrial film stock provided. No experience required, just a willingness to experiment.
Further info on the screenings and the workshop can be found at Third Eye Cinema.
