|While basic projection room practice is covered in a number of publications and books, the specific needs for the repertory and archive cinemas are very rarely discussed. However, the successful projection of classic films can only be accomplished by taking into account some specific requirements with regard to the design of the cinema, the properties of the projection equipment and the knowledge of the projectionist. |
The Advanced Projection Manual is designed to provide cinema engineers and projectionists with the necessary technical know-how and hands-on advice so that classic films can be presented the way they were intended to be presented, without compromises with regard to image or sound. Among the core topics are film and sound formats, 70mm film projection and 3-D film projection. The book also includes an introduction to electronic and digital projection technologies.
The publication is a joint venture between the FIAF Programming and Access to Collections Commission and the Norwegian Film Institute. The author, Torkell Sætervadet, has an extensive background from the field of cinema design, projection technology and sound engineering. He is currently working as an independent consultant for archive and repertory theatres as well as for commercial cinemas world-wide.
The book compromises of 300 pages and illustrations and can be ordered on-line at Norwegian Film Institute or at FIAF.
