 There, the printer has been purely deployed for commercial ends. It has been used for the special effects of over a hundred films including Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (Special Effects Oscar nomination),​ Aliens, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Donnie Brasco and Twelve Monkeys, just to name a few.  There, the printer has been purely deployed for commercial ends.

 In the Master Class industry professionals and the Filmwerkplaats Rotterdam artists were connected to design a new control program for the Oxberry 1200 that fits the contemporary artistic demands for the machine. The Printer can still run totally manual but now it can also be operated through an Arduino control program. All operating parts were checked and the functioning and operating explained. In the Master Class industry professionals and the Filmwerkplaats Rotterdam artists were connected to design a new control program for the Oxberry 1200 that fits the contemporary artistic demands for the machine.

 The main focus of of Johann'​s residency period was to put on the technological possibilities of 16mm and 35mm film in connection to the Optical Printer. With its possibilities of magnification and zooming into a 35mm film frame he could study the aesthetics and attributes of both the analogue and digital soundtrack as well as the particular quality of laser subtitles that are burnt into projection prints for film projection. The stereoscopic lens for the Bolex camera at WORM Filmwerkplaats made it possible to work with 3D moving images in a simple, analogue way. The main focus of of Johann'​s residency period was to put on the technological possibilities of 16mm and 35mm film in connection to the Optical Printer.

 During the residency stay at WORM Filmwerkplaats Johann Lurf guided a 2-day workshop open to local artists. The first day was focusing on ways of filming different places. He was showing film examples, discussing ways of approaching space in research and using the characteristics of the moving image to narrate space. Strategies on how to use formal ways of editing and camera motions and stereoscopy were explained. On the second day the participants learned about the fundamentals of the optical printer, its possibilities,​ methods of treating 16mm and 35mm film as well as its limitations. Participants worked with found footage, again with film examples and considering structural practices. The workshop was concluded by hands on practice with different types of film splicers. This way each participant was able to bring home a self edited loop of 16mm found footage film. During the residency stay at WORM Filmwerkplaats Johann Lurf guided a 2-day workshop open to local artists.
