In February of 2012 Elements of Image Making began as a workshop for the promotion of analogue film craft. It has become a monthly meet-up/hang-out/nerd-out connecting those with something to learn and those with something to teach. Operating non-hierarchically and without agenda, Elements of Image Making is a vagrant Lyceum transferring the alchemical secrets of the past via word of mouth to anyone seeking initiation into celluloid film-istry. As the industrial interests that historically sustained film production abandon us, we self organize and defy irrelevancy- keeping film where it belongs, in the underground.
To celebrate Elements’ one-year anniversary Re-Inventing the Reel presents a survey of celluloid interventions honoring filmmakers that pursue personal vision while pushing the constituent parts of the filmic apparatus to the point of catharsis and transformation.
With films by Ben Popp, Abigail Severance, Will Bragger, Robert Schaller, Janis Crystal Lipzin, John Woods, Michael Morris, Tooth, Eric Stewart, Zach Van Joo and More.
Screening preceded by Re-Animated Gifs, works made at Elements of Image Making and cake.
