Step Printing Tutorial


One day I watched Won Kar-Wai’s film ‘Chunking Express’, for which the opening scene makes use of the step printing effect. I was stunned by this effect, of its emotional resonance and it sticked with me. Some time later I bumped into the book ‘Die Zeitlupe – Anatomie eines filmischen Stilmittels’ (Slow Motion – Anatomy of a cinematic Style Tool) from Till Brockmann and learned more about the effect. Momentary I am working out an idea for a feature film in which perception in combination with emotions plays a big role and i came to think of this effect again. Since I consider working with the step printing effect in certain scenes i started researching about how to make this effect. I brought together the results in a tutorial.
