I have been lucky enough to work as a projectionist for the past 7 years at the oldest cinema in the country, the Duke of York's in Brighton, at a time when the craft is being lost to Digital technology. This documentary is about the fragility of projection and the tactile pleasure of exhibiting film. A couple of years ago i started putting together a project about 35mm projection with the help of my good friends MJ Smith and Tom Dumican as Writer and Producer respectivly. We mangaed to recruit the amazing talents of Toby Bennet as DOP, Matt Shuttleworth as Editor and Andy Phillips as composer and with a lot of love and very little time or money got the film made.
This Version features Andy Phillip's score in isolation.
