    Another Great Darkroom Video.

    I'm sure most of you have seen this, but I couldn't find any reference to it here. (I didn't look that hard, so mods can remove this if they like)
    A three-part video in Italian, with english dubbing and subtitles, in which eight students print negatives from a published book. It's an odd cross between Monty Python and Cube. (shut in a bare room, trying to solve its mysteries) They only get one shot at their final print, which adds to the reality show vibe of it, but I would like to have seen what they could do after an initial critique of their first print.

    I had seen this some time ago and as you have hinted, it promises more than it delivers if you want to learn anything about printing.

    Pity, as it wouldn't take much to make it really informative

    Brilliant! Just watched the first part (it's already 1.00am so I'm going to watch the rest tomorrow), but this is very entertaining and could appeal to younger people with an interest in analog as well.

    I just watched them all -- great fun! If this was made into a tv show I would be a faithful watcher!

    For TV (which I don't watch) this was nice. I could envision one of my professors doing something like this. It wasn't too far fetched of an idea. I even learned something, I didn't know that WT paper, gets darker in the fix and needs to dev less (I don't print WT much). I cued the video to the exact point, click here for the 101 on WT. All in all this was not only entertaining but informative at times. Good watch.

    I always expose such that I can develop the print to the end and do not interrupt the development. As I use to switch on white light after fixing, how can I know about the darkening of the print in the fix?

    I have added these videos by Italian printer Luciano Corvaglia to the APUG Video section, which is just a link directory to the original YouTube videos, so you can watch them now from within the APUG environment.
