I've been teaching free Super-8 and 16mm drop-in classes including
handprocessing, camera loans and film sales at cost from the Purple Thistle
Centre in East Vancouver for the last year and a half. It's also where we do
the processing workshops for the Project8 festival. It's been really
successful, but people have been slack on finishing work, possibly due to it
being free? Anyone have any ideas on how to get students to follow through
with finishing work within the framework of a every Tuesday
night class?
