This is lovely. It’s a super-cut called “Projection: Eighty-five Years of the Projection Booth in Movies.”

“This 12-minute film created by Joseph O. Holmes features clips from forty-six different films that take place in a projection booth, from Buster Keaton’s ‘Sherlock, Jr.’ all the way up to Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Basterds.’ The short debuted at the Redstone Theater at The Museum of the Moving Image on October 4, 2013, as part of the opening reception for Holmes’s ‘The Booth: The Final Days of Film Projection,’ an exhibition of photographs which continues through January 2014.”

You can watch “Projection” on Vimeo.

By the way, images from “The Booth” are included in Holmes’s 2013 Annual, which is available for order now.

  1. Thanks for the plug, Khoi! The video was incredibly fun to make. I wish I had an excuse to make another.

    BTW, the new Annual doesn’t have any images from The Booth, but last year’s Annual did, and it’s still available. Details of both on my blog: http://bit.ly/1eLlaI8

Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
