Here's How a 70MM Film Projector Works

Video: Beautifully. It works beautifully. If you're a film nerd or movie buff or just appreciate film in any sort of way, you'll love this footage of a 70MM film projector showing The Hateful Eight. Andrew Walker, a projectionist, captured this footage of what happens behind the scenes inside the projection room of a movie and to see all the working parts move in a time lapse is so fun. Walker writes:

I was lucky enough to be one of the projectionists to work on the 70mm roadshow for "The Hateful Eight" and this is what I captured during the 59 showings the film over the course of 15 days. The whole thing was quite an experience and it made me appreciate film all over again. Shot with a Nikon D810 using the Kessler TLS system and a Second Shooter.

    Bit generous to say "Here's How A 70MM Film Projector Works" since it is really just a movie of a projector in operation but I certainly love film based projectors. 70mm (and other large format) projectors are amazing to see in operation.
