Focus on Adventure

Bridges ’96 majored in art with a focus on photography because he wanted a career that would keep him outdoors. Outdoors? OK, that’s understandable. But out plane windows? In an Airbus that’s climbing at 200 mph? Proof positive Bo will go to great lengths — and heights — in pursuit of the perfect picture. That’s what makes him world-renowned.

From arc lamps to laser: A Projectionist's Journey

IT WAS THE SUMMER OF 1965, when the tills were alive with the sound of Julie Christie ringing up the box office, and a young Fred Fullerton — aged just 15 — landed his first job in the cinema, leaving school and starting as a probationary projectionist at the Gaumont Cinema in Dingle South Liverpool, in England’s north-west. Thanks to his age, Fred clutched a signed letter from his mother allowing him to work with X certificate movies. The cinema was installed with a pair of the best-looking projectors ever — Gaumont Kalee 21s with elephant (foot) base and lightmaster carbon arc lamps on 20 (single reel) minute changeovers. This was the classic grounding for a future projectionist. There was an air of modernity in the cinema, including the projectormatic automation system that worked by putting a small piece of foil strip on the edge of the movie at the appropriate place near the end of the reel. This foil, on making contact on a pick-up device would complete a circuit. The projectormatic drum would move one line, which was pinned up to hit a micro switch which started the incoming projector. The next pulse would revolve the drum to the next line, which was then programmed (with pins) to hit the changeover shutter and sound changeover micro-switches, continuing on throughout the movie. Futuristic stuff.
