Handmade Emulsion - An Abstract The process of handcrafting film emulsion is one that offers to the filmmaker an unprecedented degree of creative intervention and expressiveness that simply cannot be accomplished with commercial film stocks -- by making emulsion, the filmmaker is given the ability to manipulate its shape, alter its chemical properties, apply it to non-traditional bases and adjust it in countless additional ways to create a unique, photosensitive material. As such, the process manifests new forms of dialogue…

Abstract Working with motion picture film today is both an intimidating prospect as well as an exciting one --  prior to this point in history, film was the product of a highly competitive industrial science which rapidly developed from the primal photographic processes of the late 18th century to the multi-layered, monopack films of meticulously engineered silver halide grains produced today. Despite this maturity, however, film was never anything more than a means-to-an-end for an industry which never really cared…
