The above video was shot by Christopher John Ball who will be joining the organizing team is we hold a BFCC in 2024. Chris captured a lot of what I missed in this video.
John Clancy (right) chats to Mark Stuckey whom many will know as one of the specialist technicians from the BBC's 'The Repair Shop'. Mark has several 35mm projectors in his own home cinema.
Above: Stuart Hilliker sneakily getting some video and getting caught!
Stuart Hilliker and Stuart Fyvie shot video for us all day so hopefully their video will be COMING SOON to a BFCC web site near you!
No wonder I couldn't find Mark and Spizz, the cheeky buggers had sloped off down the pub!
Phil Sheard of Classic Home Cinema (above) is pleased with his 'Scope 400ft release of the James Bond film 'The World Is Not Enough' on the 24ft wide screen.
I talked Dave Locke into taking the projectionist position for this shot. Dave was involved with the BFCC right from the first event in 1976 and did projection for many years with occasional re-visits to his original role down the intervening years since.
Keith Wilton in the projection area looking at Dave's efforts on screen.
Dave Locke at the projector once more.

This is projector repair supremo Bill Parsons on the left and Simon McConway (Blackpool Northern Film Collectors Convention organizer) with his back to us. It was Simon's HID lamp converted Elmo GS1200 projector we used for many of the Super 8 shows which Bill had just serviced for him.
