Process Diary (Cameraless film project)


  • Learning about the film and how its work
  • There are 16mm, 35mm or even 70mm
  • Film runs at 24 fps, each frame is projected 3 times, give audience 72 images
  • Working on Techniques: additive and subtractive


Week2 – media transfer (process of transferring media from film to video)

  • Professional set-up e.g. ‘flying-spot scanner
  • Using mirrors to eliminate any parallax
  • Off the wall, the film is projected onto a wall, then we capture the projected image using a video camera

Week3 – Editing

Common techniques:

  • Jump cuts/ straight cuts
dissolves and other transitions such as wipes
  • Cut-aways: the scene cuts to another image or scene, sometimes to signify the passing of time.
  • Parallel editing: inter-cutting between two or more scenes to signify parallel actions.
  • Repetition: use of repeated shots to emphasis the event on screen.
  • Sequence: sometimes calls a ’montage’, an event rapidly (’montage’ has other meanings when used in other contexts such as the Russian constructivist Montage theory or in other languages such as in French, which means editing).
