We just returned from the Alternative measures conference/Festival in Colorado Springs Colorado. Saw many beautiful and provocative films. We learned a lot about the common issues facing filmmakers and the communities that they form to get their work done. There film makers from Brazil, Portugal, Canada, Austria,Germany, France, Korea, The Netherlands and America looking at films and teaching workshops for each other.
It was inspiring and invigorating and crazy fun. We learned a lot about hand made emulsions, creative development of print stock and contact printing. I learned so much that I will need talk more later.
