Hillvale Gallery  342D Albert Street, Brunswick. ‘Flat Film Archive’ launch night. Sat 16 Dec from 6pm - 9pm

Flat Film Archive — website launching tomorrow. Join us at @hillvalegallery ‪on December 16th from 6pm‬ to help celebrate. #FlatFilmArchive #Hillvale #HillvaleGallery #35mm
.
The Flat Film Archive. An ever growing on-line catalogue of flattened 35mm canisters.
.
The Flat Film Archive was borne out of the Hillvale Cubes. .
Sifting through each roll of film in preparation for the cubes’ construction, it was discovered that every canister was unique in its own right.
.
Although 35mm film is produced in a uniform fashion (from small-run hand rolled film to mass manufacturing), each roll has individual markings — from hand written notes, varying imperfections and expiration dates.
.
This evolving archive serves as an appreciation of 35mm canister design. The Flat Film Archive is proudly presented and maintained by Hillvale Photo.

Whilst going through the removal of plastic spool phase we started to come across the less common film canisters. We began to collect these unique canisters and in the process the Flat Film Archive was formed. To create a collection of all the different film canisters that were produced, and continue to be produced.
Launch night is this Saturday 16th December. Check link in bio for full event details.

All three cubes combined a total weight of 304kgs.

The metal yard uses a 200-tonne strong hydraulic compacter to crush everything from 44 gallon drums to scrap metal. Essentially making a masses of metal smaller, making for easier transport. .
We are grateful for the team at P.F. Metals for entertaining this out of the norm project.

Once fully removed of plastic we were left with approximately 30 full containers of 35mm film canisters ready to be taken to the metal yard for crushing.

Before we could crush 50,000 metal 35mm film canisters into cubes, the metal yard requested that the canisters be free of all plastic. This meant individually removing the end caps off each canister and pulling out the plastic spool. The reason behind removing the plastic spool was to create a stronger bind during the crushing process.
We were lucky enough to have a few nights where friends came to help in this process. All up it took roughly a week to complete.

The Hillvale Cubes (or rectangular prisms as some pointed out) will be on show at the Flat Film Archive launch night on Saturday 16th December 2017 for the first public viewing.
Follow along this week as we show some behind the scenes photos of what went into making this project come to fruition.

Cubes by Hillvale Photo was a project completed earlier this year. On the 2nd of May, 2016, Hillvale developed their 50,000th roll of film since opening. This is final photo to promote the project and accompanying video.
