I’m really excited about getting hands on with the Curzon Cinema’s (in Clevedon, England) fine collection of projectors and other Cinema apparatus. I first contacted them in 2011 about my idea of doing an ‘Artists Residency’ IN the collection to explore creative projects, repurposings, workshops, events and experiments that all utilise and respond in some […]
CUBE ARCHIVE This is a framework for developing an ARCHIVE at the Cube Cinema. This diagram shows different classes of unique ‘objects’ that all connect to the Cube, represent or document it or are just part of its hosted collection. Green oblongs are paper/print based objects. Programmes, posters, flyers, etc. Blue Trapezoids are bound books […]
Seems like a good moment to make some documentation of club rombus. Ill make a static page then add to it. Of course all these links really do is gravitate back to the Cube. For Rombus I’m going to have to dig into the paper, fax, photocopy archives. How did we manage before the […]
Frames found under the pedastol of the Kalee21 projector we have been using at the Cube Cinema since 1998 that was recently retired to make way for some modern machines. For an 18 year period I thought this small sample of wasted, discarded, lost or just dropped frames would make a good Archeo-Cube project. So […]
I’ve been doing more tests with film surface distress and a better set up to rephotograph. This frame shows the effect after only minutes exposure to the distressing agent. The circular area is about 5mm in diameter.
I’m asking people this question. Seeking peoples definitions in simple terms. Here I will compile the answers. If this question was “what is A cinema” we would get answers that only relate to he institution of a building and its use and this would weight the enquiry too much in one (predicatable) direction.

finally got Crow / Pylon in digital form
After 17 years I finally got my 1996 film Crow / Pylon Configuration digitised. It is going to be screened at Kino-Im-Sprengel In Hannover next week. Here are some frame grabs. Back in 96 there was only Standard definition. Now though HD has really helped the case for film because I can scan the original […]
Film Jam #4
Did the 4th Film Jam at the Cube Cinema on Saturday as part of the Hendo nights that go on there. We last did film jams over 12 – 14 years ago back in the early days of the Cube. Mega thanks to Rod Maclachlan for coming and jamming.
Extremely pleased to be offered the Imperial War Museums Debrie 35mm step printer. This machine was built in the 1930’s and has been used by IWM to transfer all their Nitrate films to safety film.
Heres the light show as we ended up setting it up. On several tables infront of the stage, effectively as the front row. Operating the OHPs meant standing up and this probably caused some obstruction to visibility for some of the audience. At the bottom left of the picture is the 16mm modified to hand […]
