Animation: 16mm Camera-less Filmmaking

July 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm4:00 pm EDT


Tech Arts for Youth Session 4B

July 31 – August 4

Monday – Friday

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Open to all levels.

Ages 11-15

Create your own handmade animation on film!

Join us to learn about motion picture film, and manipulate the surface of the film using a variety of camera-less techniques: painting, scratching, masking, and tape-lifting to create an original, collective experimental animated film on 16mm.  Each technique creates a different effect, with a range of textures, colors, and opacities. This process is an especially wonderful way to combine media art with traditional arts like drawing and painting. The possibilities are endless, and each film is a surprise, only revealing its magic when projected.

Class limited to 10 participants.
Contact Caroline at or (716) 884-7172 with any questions!
