In this hands-on workshop, participants learn how to operate the 16mm JK optical printer as well as the various techniques for creating special effects on film. On the first day of the workshop, participants will take part in test sessions, explore film selection and optical effects creation, including optical zooms, Super 8 blow-ups, masking, splits-screens and credits. On the second day, participants will put into practice what they learned the day before by making different sequences.
The images created will be developed by hand and will be the subject of a projection followed by a discussion.
