Optical Printing with the JK

NOTE: It is recommended that participants wear a mask for all in-person workshops.

Learn the basics of optical printing with LIFT’s user friendly JK optical printer in this hands-on workshop. Optical printing allows filmmakers to re-photograph to film. Typically used for copying and restoring old film material, filmmakers take advantage of the machine’s flexibility to use for experimental film projects. Topics include: step printing, superimposition, bipacking film and blowing up 8mm and Super 8mm footage to 16mm. Participants will watch and discuss a variety of optically printed films, and have an opportunity to practice hands-on exercises to familiarize themselves with this versatile piece of equipment. Discover the aesthetic possibilities available using the LIFT's JK Optical Printer.
