JK optical printer 8/16mm




no.w.here JK printer


Optical printing is a method of re-filming a frame of an original (super 8 or standard 16mm) film onto a new roll of standard 16mm stock. This duplication of a picture original can be advanced at different rates, or the optics can be adjusted to apply effects. The most common uses for the optical printer are:

• Freeze frames
• Slow and fast motion
• Transfer of Super 8 to 16mm (blow up)
• Transfer of 16mm to 16mm
• Supermipositions (double exposures)
• Dissolves and fades
• Reversed action
• Lateral reversing of the image (for example writing turned back to front)
• Vignetting and travelling mattes
• Isolating and enlarging portions of a frame

no.w.here runs workshops on the printer, which are a full introduction to the equipment and includes a demonstration of how hand processing can be used for exposure tests. To be entitled to use the optical printer you must have completed this course. Members can book to use the optical printer for free. Membership includes free and subsidised access to the no.w.here lab. More details of this can be found under ‘membership’.
