Cardboard fleapit

Tarim revealed the cardboard prototype today:


As per Projection Hero the flea pit will situate the spectator in the role of the projectionist, controlling the cinema, hence the little projection booth windows (see close up through one of the windows below). I’m loving the arcade game look. We’ve added a back board which will function as a marquee where we can advertise what’s being programmed, as per the aesthetic of these beautiful cinema hoardings.

The key difference from Projection Hero is the size – we’re designing this one to be super portable, to fit in the suitcase pictured below. Next step is another slightly smaller cardboard prototype, drawing up the dimensions for the box and getting Urbi et Orbi to fashion the shell of the box so Tarim can get down to the nitty gritty of fitting the mechanism and circuitry and I can start sewing the curtains…
