Participants in this hands-on workshop will learn the traditional techniques for creating optical effects on film using a 16mm JK optical printer. On the first day of the workshop, participants will learn how to test, choose film stock, load the camera, shoot sequences and create optical effects, including colour manipulation, mattes, split-screens, titles, optical zooms and Super 8 blow-ups. Over the course of the second day, participants will have the opportunity to practice on the printer to further explore the range of effects that are possible with the JK. All material shot over the course of the workshop will be hand processed, screened and discussed.
Goal: Participants will come away with a better understanding and working knowledge of the JK optical printer.

Instructor: Alexandre Larose
Alexandre Larose is a French-Canadian artist based in Montreal. His moving-image practice investigates phenomena of appearance and representation as translated by the media of optics and celluloid. His approach relies on a methodical stripping out of layers embedded in both the live subjects and the technique that translates them into visual artifacts. His work has screened internationally since 2006.
