Watch: Enchanting 'The Hateful Eight' 70mm Projection Booth Video
The glory of cinema, captured on camera. Projectionist Andrew Walker has been working one of the 70mm roadshow versions of Quentin Tarnatino's The Hateful Eight since wide release two weeks ago. Over the past 15 days, a camera he setup has taken timelapse photography inside the projection booth, presenting this final, mesmerizing 2-minute video. We've featured other IMAX/70mm projection booth videos in the past, mainly for Christopher Nolan movies. This is just another gorgeous glimpse inside the world of movie theaters, and what it's like to actually handle and project real film. Despite any of the occasional problems with film projection, it's still an art to see a projectionist run a perfect show, handling everything with care.
Description on Vimeo: "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." The finished video was made by Andrew Walker, featuring Ennio Morricone's track "L'estasi dell'oro" ("The Ecstasy of Gold") from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as the music. Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is now playing nationwide - find the 70mm theater list here. It's worth seeing on film. And grab the new Ennio Morricone soundtrack while you're at it.
