Handmade 16mm film at Girl Power

For most of the group at Girl Power, born into the digital age, seeing and touching actual film is a novel experience. But it brings useful lessons: how many frames does it take to make one second? How many frames must you draw a single object in order for it to be clearly visible to the human eye? What is subliminal messaging in film? The girls scratched on the emulsion side of vintage film strips and clear and black leader. These strips will be taped together to compose a collaborative film.

  1. Cityscape seems a good subject for murals. But many themes can of course be painted there, for decoration and as a break and escape from looking at cement. This painting by American painter Charles Sheeler,, would make a good mural as it is as a good painting. The image can be seen as who supplies canvas prints from original art.
