The optical printer combines both a Bolex H16 camera and projector, and is used for rephotographing Super 8 or standard 16mm footage one frame at a time. The machine allows for experimentation with the film image in many ways including reverse action, blow up, cropping, slow or fast motion and freeze frames. It is also possible to explore more advanced techniques and effects such as double exposures, lap dissolves, flicker effects, bi-packing for superimposition, mirror images, matte shots, split screens, tinting b/w film to colour with filters, and wipes.

The workshop begins with the group viewing works made by, and for the optical printer.

The course covers all aspects of the printer's function and usage as well as hand processing, loading a lomo developing tank and chemical mixing. We will also look at associated workflows with machines such as the Debrie contact printer.

The course is suitable for complete beginners to film, as well as artists already using Super 8 and 16mm who wish to extend their practice by working in a direct, tactile and material way with this wonderfully versatile piece of lab equipment.
