Direct Filmmaking Animation Workshop with 16mm Film

Friday, November 15, 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Digital Learning Suite

Join us for a free one-time workshop to learn a variety of cameraless film-making techniques and take home a unique 16mm film animation sequence. Led by visual artist Nung-Hsin Hu and media artist educator Chloe Zimmerman, the workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the direct filmmaking process and 16mm film projector. The instructors will demonstrate how to utilize film leaders, original films, and found footage by applying scratching, coloring, writing, and masking techniques to create film animation. Participants will have the chance to explore different techniques to create their own unique animation pieces. Before the end of the workshop all the film sequences will be edited together and screened with a 16mm projector. The workshop is open to all and will be offered in English and Mandarin. All materials will be included and no prior experience is necessary. 

Nung-Hsin Hu is a Taiwanese born visual artist and an arts administrator, who devoted herself to adult education for immigrant communities and building artist residency programs at the Queens Museum for the past several years. Hu’s practice interweaves video, film, performance, sculpture, and installation. She has exhibited widely both in the United States and abroad and has also received various grants and fellowships, including from the Jerome Foundation, National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan, and the Queens Council on the Arts. Hu has also participated in international residencies in São Paulo, Taipei, Berlin, the Arctic Circle, and Reykjavik. Her current projects utilize analog film and projectors, combining traditional and direct film-making techniques to address a sense of loss, archive the ephemeral, and discuss the subject of time.

She teaches filmmaking and other creative practices at venues that have included Museum of the Moving Image, MoMA, Mono No Aware, GenSpace, Swale House, and the Queens Museum’s New New Yorkers Program. Additionally, she works at Soliya, a nonprofit based in Tunis and New York, and is an active member of the New Sanctuary Coalition, an organization "led by and for immigrants to stop the inhumane system of deportations and detentions in this country."
