Splice Here: A Projected Odyssey
Splice Here is a new feature length documentary filmed over five years across Australia the U.S and U.K featuring interviews with the well known champions of projected film as well as the lesser known characters behind the scenes. Film maker & projectionist Rob Murphy began documenting what he and many others thought was the end of the film era. However, something unforeseen was happening and in 2016 the roadshow release of The Hateful8 confirmed it. Event cinema was making a come back and as Rob and his passionate film crazed colleagues scrambled to equip their cinema for 70mm projection, they had inadvertently become part of it. What had started out as the documentation of something ending was now witness to its rebirth. Projected completion 2018.
