  2. This is a short piece about 35mm film and projection.

    In my time as a projectionist I have seen the total replacement of film by digital. I made this film just before the 35mm projector was removed. I love projected film, and I wanted to document it before it went.

    The sound was created by Pat Hime, based on recordings from the projection booth.

    Shot on a 5D, composed in After Effects.

  3. A documentary about Thessaloniki's film projectionists.

    Through the monotonous machine grunting, among the four walls of a cabin and with one movement of his hand, elements like love, hatred, countries, people, situations, words, feelings of a world so close, are getting alive, only because he wants it: actors, directors, sound and light operators are held in his hands, in his readiness, his agility, when he permits us to enter into the fantastic area of the cinema! He is the lonely hermit in his kingdom. They reveal him...the film projectionist. The unknown hero, as no one knows him, as well as he knows a little about himself.

  4. For a Club van Delft reportage of a cinema (art house) in Delft (Filmhuis Lumen), I recently shot this video. This footage will be used as additional shots for the reportage.
    As I already know we won't be using all this footage for the reportage, I thought it would be nice to edit a short piece of how the film projector works. And I guess there are a lot of you who always wanted to know how a film projector works. So here is your chance.

As cinema moves from film to digital there have been a number of different films made about projectionists and the change over. This channel is an attempt to collect all of those films and stories together in one place. Along the way I have also found some short films which have projectionists as part of the theme or character of the film and these have been added also.

    Neat! I'm glad I'm not the only one excited about projecting film. I can't wait to watch all these. Thanks for adding my little piece I threw together while bored one night at the Legendary Texas Theatre in Dallas. Yes, THAT Texas Theatre!
