Exploding Films and Burning Reels: How a Tragedy Influenced the Cinema Industry

My historical project is attached as a PDF file. The project is created to look like an article in a small-format magazine or a booklet (each of the pages is representing a spread of the magazine). I also recommend to zoom out the PDF a bit for the best viewing experience.

The project investigates the history of the nitrate film and how the fires it was responsible for (one in particular) transformed the technology of cinema and impacted society. The project explains the history of the technology through its interaction with society rather than through a chronological step-by-step description so the project is a bit unusual.

Click here to download the project. I hope you enjoy it.
