‘Facts About Projection’ by Temujin Doran

I got an email from long time reader John Stanbury telling me I should check out a little video called Facts About Projection by a fellow named Temujin Doran. Temujin is a Projectionist in Islington in London, where he works at The Screen on the Green. It’s a really sweet video that gives you a beautiful glimpse into a dying art form. Movies have and still are shown on 35mm film around the country, but the stockpiles of these movies certainly aren’t growing.

It’s a wonderful little video that made me smile, and a little sentimental.

    The audio reminds me of the song losing haringey by the clientele.

    This is my local cinema – right across the road from my flat – so it’s doubly lovely!

    I love the feel of the piece. It’s really cozy, the shots are really intimate, and the music… is perfect. Thanks for sharing this!

    I am a projectionist at my local theater, and it looks a lot like this one. I work with a projector that’s been in use since the 30s, and it runs perfectly fine. Even though the technology has advanced, I love the feeling that I’m keeping a tradition alive.

    Nice video, the music/narration some how reminds me of the streets mixed with hot chip, very cool!
