Wanted: Hotel room numbers!

Update: October 18, 2023

I’m a collector of movie scenes. When I watch a movie it’s almost never without me grabbing my notebook of Evernote-app and making notes of a scene that I can use in a mashup or video essay.

I always have lots of potential ideas that require more scenes from more movies. For example: people lying on their back in the grass. Or scenes with an entity behind a window viewed from a distance, or scenes with keys behind the sun visor of a car.

I can never collect them all. But sometimes I think I have enough to start editing, see all the video’s on this site. For one of these projects I won’t stop until I have them all. Hotel room numbers! From 1 to 1000. I”ve been collecting these numbers since september 2016 and I’ve added almost one everyday. The list slowly fills and the end is in sight, but I’m still not there yet.
Will you help me?

No Country for Old Men

What I’m looking for:
– A fictional movie or tv-show that has a door with a hotel room number in it
– It can be a hotel, motel or even a cruise ship
– A character can also mention the hotel room number, or it can be seen on the room key
– No documentaries and no house numbers

When you watch a movie of tv-series, please remember that if you see a hotel room number to let me know the film title and number? This will be GREATLY appreciated. You can reach me by mail or via the form below.

Here are some (Dutch) interviews about this project: De Volkskrant | VPRO Gids

And here’s the project’s trailer:

I have big plans with this data and the project (working title 1000 Hotel Rooms) is getting bigger and bigger every month. Perhaps it will be a feature film, or a video installation, or an interactive website. I don’t know yet. It’s not going to become another “ordinary” mashup. This will be something else. It’s gonna be awesome, that’s for sure.

You can connect with me by by mail, Instagram, Bluesky or with this form below, in which you can fill in the film title, the room number and (optional) roughly where to find it in the film.

Kind regards,
