Virtual Projection Box Launched

Writing about web page

This digital initiative supports the Projection Project that has recently been well covered by the BBC Radio 4's The Film Programme on Sunday 24th April 2016 (16:20-23:19) and 'The Projectionists' – Richard Nicholson’s photographs from inside the projection box.

It has been the desire of the project team from the outset that the rich oral histories that the project has collected are accessible to the public. To make the experience of accessing these clips both engaging and more contextual and educational – the idea of the ‘Virtual Projection Box’ was conceived.

Visitors to this online exhibit are presented with a number of full-screen views of these cramped spaces. Through zooming and panning the detail of the images can be explored, as well as content revealed through hotspots on items on the screen.

The Academic Technology team provided the academic team with a platform (Omeka with Neatline), some templates and an introduction session. The content and journeys of the interactive resource have been authored with these building-blocks. As the first exhibits were produced, user interaction improvements and tweaks were made to the underlying platform by the academic technologists.

Take a look around, and comment if you find the clip about falling through the roof midway through a screening.
