The ‘Bluetooth [amateur] Cinema’


Organised by Lee Campbell as part of ‘Bodies that Resist’ FB event

Wednesday 10 June 2015, 17:00 – 21:00, Athens School of Fine Arts
Project Space of Athens School of Fine Arts
Notara 13 & Tositsa, Exarcheia
10683, Athens, Greece

With kind support from the Research Committee at Loughborough University School of the Arts English and Drama.  Can’t participate in person? Then keep up to date with developments via the Twitter hashtag #bluetoothcinema

To participate in this workshop it is important that participants bring a device with a camera/video recording facility and Bluetooth technology because you are going to record your own videos and send them via Bluetooth.

In this workshop you are going to engage in exploring intermeshing live cinema, performance and audience participation in public space. Having listened to me talk about my performance art practice, which combines audience participation and making documents/different kinds of recordings, you are going to try out recording your own instructional films and sending them to audiences around Athens via Bluetooth. Audiences will record themselves undertaking your instructions which will be fun, comedic and slapstick and very bodily and they will send these recording back to you and others via Bluetooth. Experience in filmmaking not essential; you will try out various editing techniques using footage filmed on your phone, iPad etc. to generate a set of instructional films and your creativity is only limited by the sophistication of the editing facility your Bluetooth-enabled device has.
