Hi! I hand-process my own B&W 16mm film and would like to do the same with colour, reversal or neg. I use a Lomo tank. Could anyone tell me how to do it? chemicals needed, times, temperatures, etc? Or maybe someone knows where I could get this information? Thank you Best Veronica www.veronicaibarra.com ________________________________ De: Rory Brosius <email suppressed> Para: email suppressed Enviado: mar,20 julio, 2010 18:51 Asunto: Re: [Frameworks] experimental documentary (thank you) Christopher, Thank you for the kind response. I hope you are able to incorporate everything you hope to. Keep us updated! Cheers, Rory PS: If you are looking to incorporate some interesting portraits, docudrama, and "self-reflexive" films (as Marilyn had said)... Grey Gardens: Albert & David Maysles Sherman's March: Ross McElwee War: Jake Mahaffy Chain: Jem Cohen and for fun...

Some of them were already on my radar but many others had either slipped my mind or were completely unknown to me. Thanks in particular to Amanda, Dan, Robert, Dinorah, Jeanne, Ken, Matt, Mike, Jason, Carl, Sonali, David, Ted, Elizabeth, Mads, Greg, James, Shane, Jeff, Beverly, Manuele, Rory and Rob (whew!). Special thanks to Marilyn, Jason and Rory for prodding me to focus my thoughts a bit more as I begin to shape the syllabus for the course. In response to their comments a little context is probably in order: The class I will be teaching this fall is called Film Documentary. Based on past experience with the student body I suspect that the vast majority of my students have an idea of documentary that does not go very far beyond Ken Burns and Michael Moore. Its within this context that I decided that I would teach an "experimental documentary" course in order to challenge these sorts of preconceptions. In any case when I posted my initial query to Frameworks I deliberately left the terminology undefined so as to cast as wide a net as possible in the hopes that I would get a range of responses (it seemed to have worked). I assumed correctly that many responses would point me in directions that I might not have anticipated. At the same time I included the names of certain film and video makers in order to provide some sense of what I meant by "experimental." The point was to provide some context without closing off potential avenues. Marilyn wondered about the purpose of the course. One of the major areas of focus for this class will be, as Marilyn put it, on "self-reflexive documentaries that are honest, also, about their subjectivity.” Rather than a history of such films I intend to design the course as an introduction to these kinds of films (and videos) with no attempt to be exhaustive or definitive. In this spirit, the discussions around terminology (“experimental” and “documentary”) will be integrated into the course with as little doctrinaire fanfare as possible. Jason, I wholeheartedly agree that there are no clear boundaries between Narrative, Documentary and Experimental film. I intend to design the course in such way that the content and spirit of the course convey this lack of definitive boundaries. Rory, Documentary Film is a theory course however I have recently begun to fold optional production assignments into my theory courses and I intend to do the same with my “experimental” version of the this class. How exactly I will do this has yet to be determined. I am not sure how much experience with hands on processes. Certainly the discussion around terminology and processes will have to be placed within an historical context. Again, thanks to all the very helpful feedback.
