Against the Grain:
Synopsis: Against the Grain takes a look at the creative process, focusing in on “when things don’t work out as planned”. As an experimental filmmaker I am constantly exploring the filmmaking process and trying new techniques. With this type of approach you are bound to make mistakes and are constantly returning to the drawing board, but as it says in the film “that’s the nature of the process”.

Technical Notes: The visuals for this film were created through an Artist Residence at Main Film in Montreal Quebec. The program was called “The Film Factory”, it was an opportunity for me to explore my experimental process of manipulating unexposed 16mm black and white film stock prior to principal of photography. During this program I completed the following tests on the film stock: I buried the unexposed film stock in soil, I bleached it in household bleach as well as photographic bleach; I soaked it in Berg Colour Toner, as well as a mixture of baking soda and water. These treatments were completed on the film before exposing the film to light and capturing my images. All the tests were completed on Kodak 7222 black and white film stock and was hand processed and printed by myself. All tests were successful but many obstacles were met along the way. The sound track was created by taking audio clips from a variety of 16mm found footage educational films. I made the final 16mm film print myself through the technique of using a 16mm Steenbeck editing table as a contact printer.
