Abstract: "The diverse operations of developing, fixing and washing films can be carried out conveniently with the help of simple buckets with a capacity of about ten litres. The film is unwound very quickly and plunged in such a way that it unwinds in the developer. When all the film is unwound you move it, always very quickly, into the second bucket, taking care to let it pass between your fingers to make sure that the entire surface is well…

Emulsion

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 within the film’s production,…
