Technical run through
Met with Susan at NRO today for a technical test ahead of the launch. Quite easily we managed to get the images matching on both laptop and projector screen. The audio was a bit more complicated, with only two audio jack sockets to choose from, I selected the wrong one which when combined with another issue, a low volume setting, it presented a problem none of us knew how to solve. Luckily Peter from the East Anglian Film Archive came along and all was sorted out very quickly. Always good to do a technical run through to ensure as smooth a delivery as possible.
The film archive has a fantastic online resource – I have chosen this film Proud City from 1955:
At the beginning of the film, people are shown participating in a walking tour of the city – passing sites I walked with the History Detectives last year.
