I’ve always enjoyed watching classic movies in vintage theaters. With today’s animation, my hope is to convey the nostalgic feeling of cinema’s Golden Age through a short trailer for a gangster film night marathon. A variety of elements in this animation challenged me. Most notably, I enjoyed discovering how to produce a realistic beam of volumetric light flickering from a 3D model of an antique projector. I enhanced the mood by adding a music and sound bite montage created by Jon Anderson and Vangelis. Their creative collaborative music is available on an album titled The Friends of Mr. Cairo.
