jotta is pleased to present this one day session hosted by no.w.here lab, it is intended to serve as a practical introduction to no.w.here as a project space, as well as the concept of working with celluloid film.

This includes the optical and contact printers, Steenbeck editing tables, Rostrum animation camera, no.w.here’s black and white 16mm processor, and facilities for hand processing 8mm film.
The session will include a screening of a selection of work made in and through the lab - both on film and video.
