    A celebration of the work, legacy and influence of legendary visual effects creator and filmmaker Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013). The podcast, now on its 28th episode, is part of The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation, which Harryhausen set up in 1986 to ensure his body of work was preserved as a coherent collection, with educational rather than simply entertainment value. The first episode includes interview clips with Harryhausen himself; other episodes are devoted to specific films such as One Million Years BC (1966), Clash of the Titans (1981), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).

    The outcome of a research project led by the University of Warwick, this site investigates the history of cinematic projection, the role and image of the cinema projectionist, and the contemporary expansion of projected images and events outside the cinema. It uses a mixture of methods, including oral history, archive research, interviews, textual analysis, photographs and short films to document and explore film projection and the digital transformations of the twenty-first century. The site is organised into four main categories: Virtual Projection Box, which enables the interactive exploration of a projection room; Changing Technology-Changing Work, a tour showing the ways in which technological developments have changed the projectionist’s job; Exploring the Box, which highlights the key features of a 1910s projection room; Women in the Box, about the work of women projectionists across the history of cinema. Highlights include: a film demonstrating the flammability of different types of film stock; an audio clip about adapting to digital projection technologies, and a short news item depicting a ‘projectionette’ showing films for a wartime audience.
