Did you know that cinemas still have projectionists?!? It’s true! To help educate the wider public, a member of this increasingly rare breed has smuggled this illustrated reference guide documenting life in the profession out of the world of overpriced popcorn. These insights by Adam Gillespie have previously been shared online, and Amplified Press is now delighted to bring them into print!
Part Customer Service Wolf, part references to classic movies, and part niche jokes for fellow cinema workers, Help! I’m A Projectionist is an hilarious collection of single-page comics about day-to-day battles in the ongoing struggle between humans and digital projectors that happens when you work in a cinema. You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?
