Christoph Runné, Experimental Filmmaker shows a 35mm Steenbeck editing table

August 15, 2010 Leave a comment

Christoph Runné is a Vancouver-based experimental film, video, and installation artist. Through his work, he explores the unhidden yet seemingly invisible world around us. He creates visual tone poems with a humanitarian heartbeat whose minimalist and impressionistic methodology contradicts the complex human conditions with which Runné engages.

Below is Christoph adjusting a 35mm Steenbeck editing table – Double picture eight-plate editing table for 35 mm standard and CinemaScope film with sound shift system. Capacity 300 and 450 m picture film, 500 m sound film (PE).

This video was filmed by April Smith of AHA MEDIA on a New Media camera – Panasonic DMC-ZS3. AHA MEDIA is about exploring mobile media production through New Media cameras.

AHA MEDIA is very proud to learn how to scratch emulsion off of 16mm films from David Rimmer – Pioneer of Moving Images at Interurban Galley in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Born and raised in Vancouver, Rimmer graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.A. in English Literature in 1967. Inspired by Stan Brakhage’s films and writings, he made his first important experimental films, Square Inch Field and Migration, in 1968 and 1969 respectively.

At the time the artist-run Intermedia Co-op in Vancouver and supportive individuals in the Vancouver offices of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) were providing Vancouver-based experimental filmmakers with access to surplus film, processing, optical printers and other post-production facilities. These filmmakers, Rimmer included, soon became part of the international experimental/avant-garde/underground film movement of the late ’60s and early ’70s.

Rimmer was also making film loops for performance pieces. This led to the production of several loop films, including what is probably his most widely seen film, Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper(1970), made from a short segment of an NFB documentary.

Below are some photos from his film: Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper(1970)
