It is a great weekend: always something to look forward to in the weeks before.

It's interesting to think about it. It's basically a largish room with tables and films, and a bunch of projectors showing films. At face value, it sounds like something you should be through within an hour or two.

-but when you are there, there is this enthusiasm going on all around you and it's almost impossible to not get caught up in it. This is because of the people that are there, and it is really what it's all about.

This is basically the equivalent of a full day at work plus some pretty serious overtime, but it passes very quickly. Soon enough, or even too soon you are packed up and headed home, and probably thinking about the next one.

Notes from CineSea X

I finally got to Wildwood early on a Friday! Not as early as Thursday arrivals Claus Harding and Gary Crawford, but early enough to for us to set up the screen and decide on a different placement (the opposite direction) from previous shows. This worked out well since it allowed for a greater throw that enabled us to fill the entire 9' x 12' when projecting flat prints.

There were enough early arrivals for us to have an enjoyable group dinner on Friday evening and then finish setting up back at the Ocean Holiday. A possibility for future shows is to have a pre-show screening on Friday night, perhaps running an entire feature or at least longer reels than we do at the Saturday night screening.

Saturday was a warm, sunny, beautiful day. I was thrilled that Jon Addams and his son were able to attend along with first timers Jack Cleveland & Thad Komorowsky. My jaw dropped at the sight of the 16mm carbon arc projector that Joe Greisbach brought. Not only did John Cappazo make an amazing pumpkin cheesecake, he had the sound Castle Films 200' Rudolph Valentino, Idol of the Jazz Age print I'd been looking for.

 -

T-shirts featuring our brand new logo, brilliantly designed by Jean-Marc Toussaint, were a big success. If Forum members are interested in getting one, please let me know.

The large group dinner on Saturday was a great experience (what an entertaining bunch of film folk!) with a beautiful sunset view at the Boathouse restaurant. Then the evening screening started. Gary Sloan and I operate our respective 16mm & Super 8mm projectors side by side, taking turns so that it feels (as someone had mentioned) like two DJs spinning at a club.

Various Super 8mm Openers & Daysets started the show, then came trailers for the classics Attack of the Crab Monsters & I was a Teenage Frankenstein. The 1933 cartoon Mickey's Gala Premier followed. That led into a 16mm short about Wildwood (home of CineSea) in the late 50's and early 60's provided by Joe G.. The order has become a blur, but we showed the Ken Films 400' digest of The Poseidon Adventure that I had re-recorded into stereo, Steve Klare's print of One Froggy Evening, a beautiful IB Tech 16mm print of Disney's Magic and Music, CHC's new Die Another Day extract in scope & stereo, a very funny 1942 Edgar Kennedy short Cooks and Crooks (16mm), Hitchcock's Psycho promo (nice sharp Super 8mm print), 16mm western trailers from the 30's & 40's, A Derann scope print of Tom & Jerry in Downbeat Bear, 16mm Matrix & Star Wars trailers, Daffy Duck in The Great Piggy Bank Robbery (16mm, courtesy of Thad K.), and formerly silent Ken Films 200' cutdowns The Spider & Public Enemy with new soundtracks added. I know I've forgotten a few titles……The screening ended at about 1 AM with the 1936 Polly Moran short The Dutchess (16mm, courtesy of Joe Vannicola). I had never seen any of Polly's short films and now I have to see them all. What a great film comic.

 -

A first for CineSea was the use of digital projection to show the english subtitled trailer for Super 8 Madness, along with clips from the film provided by the makers of the documentary. This got a great reaction from the audience and i can't wait for the upcoming DVD release.

Thanks to every one who came, and a huge debt of gratitude is owed to Lou Franchetti. Shorty Caruso & John Black started CineSea, and Lou (along with his son) has made it happen, show after show.

With Claus doing such fantastic work taking pictures, I only took a few. And to me, these two pictures are what CineSea is all about…..having fun and enjoying film. Here we have Steve Klare's son Steven, proudly showing off his first, very own Super 8mm projector!

CineSea 11 will be held on Saturday, April 25th, 2015. Please join the fun!

Thanks for the extra pictures, Doug. I was curious to see the t-shirt. Steven is probably one of the youngest ciné projectors' owners in the world !

Seeing that smile on Steve's son's face says it all. Good to see an activity that father and son can enjoy together.

There's a lot that's nice about the moment in those pictures, one of them is that Jon Addams was very helpful getting that machine up and running, and also he dropped by just in time to see it for himself!

That's the value of building community like we do: none of us can know everything and together we are a lot smarter than we can ever be on our own. Besides: it's more fun this way!

Steven has lead kind of a charmed life where this stuff is concerned. It took him a long time to realize that half the Dads in the neighborhood not only don't show movies this way, but have no idea it even exists.

I think the idea of showing a feature film on Friday is a good one. The two times I attended, I came two or three days early. Last year took the time to visit the local zoo in the Wildwood area and found it to be very pleasant. I also made a day trip to Atlantic City; not that I am much of a gambler but I enjoyed walking on the boardwalk. I also spent a day in Cape May.

Doug, that was a great summary of the weekend...which, as always, seemed to be over just as it began. In April I hope to spend more time socializing and chatting and less time trying to sell stuff. Although any film collectors out there should consider Cinesea as a great place to sell. AND BUY.... You have a built in group of collectors in one place ..film collectors almost exclusively. Bring films, projector and rent a table for 20 dollars and you are in business. The hotel is only 65 dollars a night....most rooms are huge suites with full size kitchens. You cannot go wrong going to Cinesea.
