Explore the museum galleries and the BC Archives' Moving Image Collection with us in new and surprising ways. Early experimental silent film from BC, some paired with a live score by local musicians, will be projected onto gallery walls through remixes & mashups. The evening will also include a collaborative draw-on-film animation activity that will be projected at the end of the night.
Revisit, Re-imagine, Respond!
Curated by Aimée van Drimmelen, part of the Film + Sound Series.
Created in collaboration with MediaNet.
- Trevor Lang and Shilo Preshyon (Tango Lima, Cartoon Lizard) will provide immersive synth-driven soundscapes for the evening.
- Ora Cogan bring silent film to life with her ethereal instrumentation and haunting vocal harmonies.
DRAW-ON-FILM ANIMATION ACTIVITY:
- Be a part of a collaborative Draw-on-film animation on 16mm film. Also known as direct animation or animation without camera, draw-on-film is an animation technique where footage is produced by creating the images directly on film stock. Participants will have the chance to decorate portions of a clear 16mm film reel, and at the end of the night we will project our creation for all to see! With support from MediaNet.
