Optical Printing Stand by Loren Sears

From Canyon Cinemanews (July 1967)


An interview that appears in Scott MacDonald’s book, Canyon Cinema: The Life and Times of an Independent Distributor (University of California Press, 2008), contains an error (bottom of page 77), in which I misattribute the design and construction of Loren Sears’s optical printer (illustrated here) to Lenny Lipton. This is entirely my error, for which I sincerely apologize to Loren, Lenny (sadly, no longer with us), and Scott. My thanks to Canyon Cinema and Brett Kashmere for helping me correct the record.
