Week 2 Prep: 16mm Film Magazine Transfer
This week, we will be tearing up bits of magazines, newspapers, phonebooks etc. and sticking these bits onto clear packaging tape.
Then, we will cut the packaging tape into strips, dunk the strips into buckets of warm to hot water, leave the strips immersed for about 3-5 minutes and then rub the magazine pulp off the tape.
Only the ink remains on the tape. Then, just slap the strips of tape onto 16mm clear leader film (avoid the sprocket holes) and project.
See an EXAMPLE of what we collectively made in last semester's class.
