Thanks, all, very, very much for those great ideas about film and
video projection equipment. I'll pass them along to our faculty and
our technical support people, and lobby for as much of it as I can.
Hope you can visit us here in a year or so to see the results.

The consensus on James Bond doesn't surprise me: I had heard the same
myself for years, and have in fact seen him in action at the Orphan
Film Symposium. He was our top choice to design and rig the spaces
here, but some kind of clash (scheduling, personalities, who knows)
led to a falling-out between 007, the architects, and the
administration. So a big firm from New England is now contracted to
do the work.
