Biography:

I am semi-retired and been involved with 16mm film presentations for over 30 years and projected many different shows to suit the particular audiences of the day. However, many things change over the years together with the loss of many local cinemas with that in mind I decided to change my presentation subjects and concentrate on audiences that I believed would be interested in Nostalgia from the yesteryear of films. My presentation runs for approximately 60 minutes continuously and includes five condensed films together with support features to create a programme in similar format to that of one from the yesteryear of the local cinema.

I use 16mm B&H professional film projectors, real film, striped optical sound and a special 6ft silver screen there is no digital influence what so ever in my atmospheric presentation, I use 6ft Screen placed directly in front of the audience together with a raised loud speaker unit. All equipment needed will be supplied by me; it normally takes about 15/20 minutes to set up including a 5 minute to check the projector and image throw to the screen.
