— labo artisanal —


Un nouveau labo "" tenu par des cinéastes vient de voir le jour à Londres, reprenant l'initiative de la London Filmmaker's Cooperative (Malcolm Le Grice et quelques autres) qui s'était abîmée avec le naufrage du Lux Center il y a quelques années. Il y a là-bas une tireuse optique en fonctionnement, et pas mal de matériel qui va progressivement être proposé aux adhérents (spires 16mm, tireuses contact etc.).
Voici leur premier document de présentation en anglais.

The nearest tube is West Hampstead on the jubilee line. Turn left out of the station, walk down past the pub and cafe west. You are on West End Lane. As the road starts to bend to your right there is a road called Hemstal Road. Take this to the bottom where the corner shops are and turn left and you are staring at the studios: a brick warehouse with blue painted window frames. This walk takes about 5-7 mins.
