A short film about Dave Mead, the projectionist at the Wellfleet Drive-In, in which he operates the equipment and discusses his craft. I shot this footage back in 2005; it sat in a cardboard box until I dug it out in 2013 and finished editing it.
Screened at the 2014 Independent Film Festival of Boston, the 2014 Virginia Film Festival, and the 2014 Three Rivers Film Festival.
