Projectionist project looking for help

Planetary Projection will document, where possible in their own words, the work and experiences of the world’s film projectionists, today an endangered species. Accompanied by photographs of projectionists at work, brief vignettes will present some of their views on cinema and their trade, its past, present and future.

They’re looking for projectionists to contribute to the project.

With time, they hope to publish a selection of the on-line vignettes in book form. Please visit their website, where you will find a one-page PDF description of the project you can circulate or post. You will also find there a scholarly article on the film projectionist in early cinema by Timothy Barnard, in its published English, French and Spanish versions.

Already there are twenty lovely submissions by projectionists from the US, UK, Denmark, Brazil, Ireland, Macedonia, Argentina, Austria, Scotland, The Netherlands and South Africa. More to come soon!

Planetary Projection is a project of caboose, an independent scholarly film book publisher based in Montreal. In 2009 they published an acclaimed new English translation of selections from André Bazin’s What is Cinema?, and in 2012 will be publishing the first-ever English translation of Jean-Luc Godard’s Introduction to a True History of Cinema and Television, with countless additions and corrections to the French edition.
