After nearly five years running my single screen I have decided to take advantage of Kodak's current 2 for 1 deal on their Projection Training. My projectionist and I are driving down to L.A. tomorrow morning, going to the classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, and will be back just in time to test our new skills building up and presenting Austin Powers. I'll give you my critique on the training upon my return,

So Burney, how did your "ScreenCheck Experience" go? I find something new to learn every time I attend a class or seminar, and enjoy the interaction with the other students. When you hear the questions asked, or talk over lunch, it's amazing how much theatre folks have in common.

I enjoyed the class very much. I was glad only five students attended and two of them left a couple hours early on the last day. We (my projectionist and I) learned a lot. We implemented some of our new skills today and I think we have a better picture already. I recommend the class to everyone. If you go, ask lots of questions.

How pertinent for your operation was it? How much does it cost? Do they do this anywhere else in the USA than Lost Angels?

Contact information is on the ScreenCheck website:
http://www.kodak.com/US/en/motion/screencheck/projTraining.shtml

Training seminars have been done "on location" if enough people are signed up in a given city.

It was $250 each because they had a 2 for 1 deal going on. I probably wouldn't have gone without the discount. It was very pertinent. They have three projectors in the training room: two Christies and a Century SA. The room is like a small screening room. John and I learned a lot, came back and did a few things to my SA and whalla...the picture is brighter and sharper and the projector is quieter! They took apart a Century intermittent and showed us all the parts and how the thing works and explained how time consuming they are to repair, hence the high cost. They also demonstrated all the sound stuff, ie. pink noise, Dolby tone, etc. and demonstrated how to use RP40 and a light meter for a better picture and how to cut aperature plates.

John, If a non-professional who's interested in this stuff wanted to attend, and of course pays the cost, would Kodak have any objection to having someone like that in the class? Or do they require that students be currently employed in some kind of booth capacity?

David: I assume they would welcome people not currently working in theatres, as long as you did not displace a person who really needed the training immediately. Afterall, the whole idea of the ScreenCheck program is to help theatres have "Film Done Right". Just be upfront with your background --- who knows, with your new-found knowledge, you may decide to change careers.
