This time we are in Newcastle-upon-Tyne to visit the Hands on Film Lab with its founder Leah Millar. We join Leah for a tour of the lab, take a look at some of the facilities and talk to her about her love of photochemical film. We talk colour theory, seeing images come to life and the best ways to get film out of a cartridge. Join us as I point and ask "what does that do"
"If you are sitting in the dark and just watching your images coming up on this screen, what you have shot kind of comes to life agin. You start to think about what you might want to do with the images, and what order you are going to put them in, and I really enjoy spending that time with the work I’ve shot again. I really like the fact that I film it, and then spend more time with the images, thinking about them, and maybe rediscovering them."
Experimental film and installation artist Jason Moyes lives and works in rural Scotland and has been exploring the moving image since 2007. His work has been shown in the UK, North America, Europe and Asia. He is a founding member of the Moving Image Makers Collective.
