Level 2 Workshop | Boston
AMIA, in partnership with The Film Foundation, offers two levels of training for projectionists and staff presenting 35mm film in theaters. There are two workshops offered in 2018 – Level One in Chicago, IL (August 28-30), and Level Two in Boston, MA (October 15-17).
The three-day intermediate workshop is intended for projectionists with a good understanding of the operation of a film projector. Attendees should feel comfortable with threading and light maintenance before attending the Workshop.
The workshop curriculum will –
- Assess and reinforce correct techniques and projection skills
- Provide adequate, small-group and one-on-one training in the areas of proper projection maintenance and configuration
- Provide an understanding of the history and context of film projection
- Provide an understanding of proper presentation and showmanship
Class size will be limited to 12 projectionists to allow for the hand-on training. The workshop will be held at Boston, Light & Sound at their facility in Boston on October 15-17, 2018.
This is a unique opportunity for small group and one-on-one training for projectionists working with 35mm film, especially with archival and rare prints.
Registration will open July 25, 2018.
Workshop fee is $350.
