BIOGRAPHIES

DIANA BERDICHEVSKY comes from a long line of filmmakers and artists. Her passion for her craft was ignited in her childhood in Russia where she was exposed to a life of theatre, film and art through her parents and grandparents. With 10 years experience in production as a director, Diana hit the ground running as soon as she finished her Creative Writing/ English degree from York University, directing commercials for Indigo Books, The Cancer Society of Canada, Money Mart, Band Aid and others. Her work has been featured on prominent online publications (Creativity Online, Stimulant and others). In 2015 she received the Creative Innovation Award from Humber College for her work on their Mental Health Campaign.

ALISON LYNNE WARD is a writer/director/producer of independent film and theatre with a specific interest in LGBTQ and women's stories. She previously directed the short 15 Years Later, co wrote/co produced the short Empty With Purpose and wrote, produced and co directed Writing Kim, a feature length dramedy which is currently in post production. Currently, she is developing a one person stage show titled No Gold Star which will be shown at the Halifax Fringe Festival this September.

RAY HINKLE graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film 2017.

Born in Taipei and raised in Vancouver, BERNIE YAO graduated in 2012 from Emily Carr University with a BFA in Film. Currently working as a Producer for feature length film projects.

RYAN ERMACORA: My work primarily investigates the visible and invisible ways in which humans have engraved themselves into natural spaces and is informed by an interest in avant­garde depictions of landscape. While I practise narrative filmmaking from a perspective based in affect and lived experience—my process remains rooted in a deep curiosity regarding the formal attributes of cinema as a discrete art form. Through formal experimentation, I have defined my self-reflexive and structuralist approach to cinema.

JESSICA JOHNSON is an experimental filmmaker living in Vancouver, B.C. She works predominantly with 16mm film making short experimental works that intend to shift perspectives on landscape. Much of her works rely on stillness in duration to impress a feeling upon the viewer of time passing. Her films have internationally at festivals such as Edinburgh International Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema and Images Festival. She is a recent graduate from Simon Fraser University where she completed a Film Honours Degree with an extended minor in Archaeology.

Tinting and toning expand the creative boundaries of black and white analogue film. By employing a range of different metals and dyes, filmmakers can imbue their prints with luscious blue, brown, burgundy and red tints and tones. Furthermore, tinting and toning can also dramatically improve the archival stability of film.

In this hands-on workshop, we will cover the different available toners (both pre-packaged and custom-mixed) and how to use them safely in the darkroom. Each participant will get the opportunity to tone film. The workshop is accessible and no previous knowledge of film techniques or technology is required.

Price of workshop includes all materials. Attendees are welcome to bring their own processed black and white print film for toning, but leave precious originals at home!


Schedule

* 10:00am-10:15am Welcome and introduction * 10:15am-12:00pm Introduction and overview to toning, available toners, workflow and darkroom safety * 12:00pm-12:45pm LUNCH * 1:00pm-5:00pm Darkroom session with different toners: iron blue, thiourea and selenium.
