Last weekend ‘One Hundred Blinks’ had it’s Edinburgh screening. The film was exhibited as an immersive cinema space with no lighting and bean bags, the film on a continuous loop for viewers to drop in / out of the film at any time.

The film installation was a great success with 120 viewers coming along. At one point it was standing room only. The invaluable feedback was great with 4 people coming out crying (‘It’s just so emotional, viewing life as a cycle like that’) and one man asking if he could get the soundtrack on iTunes as it was so calming. Many people have requested a Glasgow screening, and I’m working on that.

Many thanks to all who came along and to Summerhall and its supportive staff. A thoroughly great venue.

Thursday’s outdoor projection event was a great success,  despite a few frozen toes and was, for me personally, a huge reward and sense of achievement to have the film presented on the site I initially proposed for the work.

It was quite a powerful sight to have ‘One Hundred Blinks’ projected upon Forth Valley Royal Hospital.  Visitors, staff and patients stopped to watch the 100 faces change through the ages, each one 40ft high. One visitor approached with her young daughter to tell me they had been sitting in their car and watched the entire film, feeling as if they were at a drive-in.  Another highlight was Annie Barker coming to see the film and her key part as the face of the 100 year old.

The site was perfect and appeared meant for screenings.  It is possible that Forth Valley Royal Hospital may use the site to deliver health information to the local community.

A gallery below shows more documentation of the event. Thanks to Iain White for his invaluable technical support, to Peter Dibdin Photography with help documenting the event and to Babs McCool and Forth Valley Royal Hospital for their support.
