Roger D. Wilson is an independent filmmaker based out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Roger received a Degree in Film Production in 1993 from Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Since receiving his degree Roger has lived and worked in Calgary, Winnipeg and Ottawa and has held a variety of positions in the film industry including cinematographer, lighting technician, lighting & grip co-ordinator at William F. White International Inc and Technical Director at The Independent Filmmakers Co-operative of Ottawa. Roger’s artistic practice is based on the need to be consistently exploring the technical side of creating films. Using traditional filmmaking techniques such as pixilation, time-lapse photography and optically printing Roger is able to alter the moving image. He also manipulates his photographed images using camera-less animation techniques, hand processing, contact printing and emulsion making. Roger is widely known for his technique of pre-exposure emulsion manipulation. Working in complete darkness Roger treats his film stock to processes that alter the films emulsion; he then uses this manipulated film stock to photograph images. He has buried unexposed 16mm black and white film in soil, boiled it in water and bathed it in baking soda, berg colour toner, household bleach, photographic bleach, Jell-O and alcohol all before photographing images. His 16mm b&w film Against the Grain reveals the results from many of these experimental processes. The best roulette and poker on our site beste online casinos deutschland. Go to and get big bonuses!
