I realize the best way to learn about booth operations and film handling is "hands on" experience. I'd also like to find a good, basic beginner's guide. I've downloaded some documents from Film Tech, but I'm wondering if someone would direct me to a "Projection & Film Handling For Dummies" resource.

Thanks.

The Kodak ScreenCheck Projection Training courses are available:
http://www.kodak.com/US/en/motion/screencheck/projTraining.shtml

Also try the SMPTE Projection Manual:
http://www.smpte.org/smpte_store/books/

Projection Manual
ISBN Number: 940690454
Regular Price $135.00
Member Price $89.00

SMPTE is pleased to announce the new Projection Manual, in collaboration with ITEA and BKSTS. This manual, comprised of two main sections, includes a BKSTS projectionist manual, featuring a comprehensive tutorial guide providing a step-by-step training program for the new projectionist. The second half consists of a series of articles authored by U.S. experts in cinema technology. These articles, carefully selected, reinforce aspects of the first section, while providing additional information on U.S. Projection practices. ***** This manual is an excellent resource for newcomers to the projection room.

I believe theatre consultant Vince Guzzo also developed a training manual:

...buy some projectors, put them (no, hoist them) into your garage, tear them apart, put them together again (save all new "spare" parts
) and ruin film till you don't anymore!
Just kiddin'. But I love my XL's and I'm still lookin' for land.....
