Having my redundancy approved feels like being on a lifeboat floating away from the Titanic. I’m sad to see the glorious thing go down but I’m so glad I’m getting the fuck out of here.. Oh yes, getting rid of my uniform tomorrow! The trousers had a hole in the left knee and the lining was ripping, my shoes were worn out as well. They would have offered me Team Member position with a pay cut. Cuz on my interview I said I don’t like digital. Lol yea ok kthnxbai! #odeon #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems

Sweetheart just sent me this picture heheh. I’ve been away from all the cinema life forever. This is so cool. As far as I can see it’s the wooden roll that had some cables around it, two port glasses (heavy!), two spools and a 35mm trailer of something. D’awww! And I just sent in my voluntary redundancy request today. 35mm cinema was the best! #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems #35mm #film

Greedy odeon fuckers! Ripped out a few rows of the comfy AMC seats and stuck their torturous Premier Seats there instead! Fuck’s sake! Extra money for a seat that’s shittier than the cheaper ones?! Hmm.. In the big screens my usual row stayed unharmed but in the upstairs screens they’re right in the middle. Odeon, you bastards! #odeon #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems

The last bit of fun I had with 35mm. I built up my last film Taken 2 and just couldn’t resist inserting a frame from Brüno in the middle of it. Yes, that would be a frame of a cock. And for two weeks hundreds of people (Taken 2 was incredibly popular!) saw a cock on the big screen for 1/24 of a second and never even realised. I had to do it for my grand kids! One day I will be showing them Fight Club and saying that’s what I used to do. (Even if I pussied out and only put 1 frame and not more into the film). 35mm is dead! Long live the 35mm! #cinema #film #35mm #projection #projectionistproblems

So I just started my last 35mm print here at Odeon Broadway Plaza.

Not gonna say “ever” cuz who knows… But still very emotional!

The last day for this 35mm projector. The picture is slightly out of focus on the top, how cute πŸ˜₯ #cinema #projection #projectionistproblems #35mm  (Taken with Instagram at AMC Cinemas)
