Hi Carolyn,

Below is the screening list from the last time I taught Optical Printing at
Columbia College. I agree that Pat O'Neill is probably the greatest example
of Optical Printing artistry, and include much of his work is available for
purchase in DVD form. However, I would also stress that it was amazing to
take the prints of his work and view them on rewinds with a light table so
that students could really study how he created his "looks". I love Water
and Power too, and usually saved it until the last class in the semester.
