It depends on the length of your film and the brand of projector. For
short loops (under 10 minutes), lab in London makes them
for Elf projectors, and Frank Bode in Berlin for Eiki. For 10-15
minute films, and for any projector, 2M in Amsterdam, for 15-30
minutes, L'Abominable has been making some, and for films up to an
hour, Robert's is the best. I have come across other quirky models,
motorized loopers etc.

A couple of years ago, when founding the Film Gallery, I started
acquiring loopers and projectors and now rent them out and provide
maintenance, mostly in France but also has far as New York and
Beijing... There are a dozen shows a year in Paris alone using
loopers, in galleries but also in major museums and art fairs.
