FREE Disposable Filmmaking Workshop

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The only time I’ve ever attempted to make a film/movie/moving picture, was my senior year of college, shooting a fake condom commercial for a group project (best class EVER). I spent four hours editing a bunch of overexposed footage and teaching myself how to use iMovie, the whole time cursing my “team members” who had all flaked. I wanted to iKill them, but I did my darnedest and the result was pretty effing great if I do say so myself. What myself also says is that compared to any of the short films I saw at the Thursday kick-off of the Disposable Film Festival, my puny little flicker would have won a Razzie.

If you’ve had a similar experience or have always wanted to break into the exciting world of talking pictures, the Disposable Film Festival is hosting a Disposable Filmmaking Workshop at Artist Television Access this Sunday. The website boasts:

Community Director at, Blake Whitman watches a lot of videos, and so he knows a thing or two about what makes a good film. In this workshop, he’ll go over everything from basic shooting techniques, editing styles, and instruct how to stitch photos together to create an animation (known around the interwebs as photomotion). Class starts at noon, is FREE and breakfast is provided…we know, it sounds awesome.

They’re right. It does sound awesome. FREE BREAKFAST!!! Oh yeah, and film stuff. WOOT!

Ali was born and raised in the Wholesome/Creepy capital of the world, Salt Lake City, UT. Once she was old enough to blow that pop stand she escaped to the place that was the anti-SLC: The Peoples Gay-public of Drugifornia aka San Francisco (holla 30 Rock!). You can now find her throughout this glorious city slurping Pho and scheming with her best friend Pinky doing what they do every night; try and take over the world.
