Welcome to Analog Cookbook

Hello and welcome to Analog Cookbook!

My name is Kate, I founded Analog Cookbook in 2019 as a means of promoting accessibility in celluloid filmmaking and sharing knowledge of analog arts. Since then, we've published 4 issues, created a collective 16mm painted music video, and are currently working on our first themed issue titled Analog Futures. Be sure to submit your work here.

Emerging from DIY roots, we are committed to sharing darkroom recipes, featuring artists working with analog film, photography, and video, and building a platform for celluloid enthusiasts all over the world. As we look towards 2022, we're thinking about how to go even further.

Be on the lookout for new initiatives, articles, and projects in the new year. In the meantime, meet the amazing curators, artists, filmmakers, and photographers behind the publication.

Hogan Seidel (They/Them)

"I am an artist and educator living and working in Boston, MA (soon-to-be resident of Hamburg, Germany). I work in the traditions of experimental film, personal filmmaking, and queer aesthetics.

My current research is on the inequities of the arts in higher education in the United States. How profit-motive models for colleges and education create classist, transphobic, ableist, and racist environments for the arts, and negatively affect local artist communities and movements. This research hopes to gather stories and culminate into a collective manifesto and toolkit for artists and art educators.

Outside of the hoity-toity world of arts and academia, the things that bring me joy are DnD, my dog (Meatloaf), my husband (Konni), reading poetry, doing nothing for a whole day, and time with queer friends."

Andi Avery was born in New York, where they learned to give their unvarnished opinion on just about everything. After a promising childhood defined by an incorrigible book habit, and 4 years in an intensive acting and directing program, they dropped out of an all-girls private college after 8 months. Andi spent the next decade trying to assuage their guilt by obtaining as many odd certifications as possible as they tried to find their niche. The yoga teacher-cum-sommelier-cum-wildlife veterinary technician-cum-sex worker (sure, you can add a rim shot in there if you like)-cum-stuntperson finally pulled their shit together in 2015 when they wrote their first film script. Leaving Charlie was shot in 2016 by a crew of 40 women & non-binary individuals. The narrative short has made rounds on the festival circuit, landing Andi a modest handful of awards. Most importantly, it finally allowed them to utter the only statement that got a bigger eye-roll from Mom & Dad than their job as a stripper:
“…but what I really want to do, is be an artist.”
Andi’s narrative film credits include Leaving Charlie, and 80/20, both based on their experiences as a queer person and sex worker. Andi’s film work has been exhibited at Atlanta Film Festival, Nitehawk Cinema, and London International Film Festival, among others. Andi's alternative process photography had its first public showing at the 2021 Queer | Art Summer Print Show.
