MPFV234 Optical Printing: Conscious Manipulation of Space, Time and Light 3 cr.

Students will focus on how to shape the space, time and light of the motion picture image on one of the most versatile of film devices, the optical printer. The optical printer consists of a camera, a projector head and a light source on which a student may rephotograph already developed film to extract and explore the hidden potentialities of the image. Students will quickly gain hands-on experience with the printer through numerous demonstrations and exercises. Screenings of key works will illustrate myriad techniques. Students of all artistic disciplines are welcome and encouraged to attend.
