Drawing on Film - Workshop at Tate Summer School

I was asked by Anna Lucas to run a 16mm workshop over a day and a half as part of the Tate Summer School 2016. We started the day with a warm up activity. We played an early 16mm negative film on a projector, then reeled the film out across the space (the whole 100ft) and I asked the 30 participants to colour the film using sharpies. They had about 4 ft each. Every couple of minutes I asked them to swap. The idea was to cover as much film as quickly as possible. We then fed the end of the film into the projector and it dragged across the space as it was projected. This is the result.
