Here is my attempt at what you want. All I did was make a volumetric spotlight, and then put a material at the start with a transparency, with some animated noise in it.

You will need to do alot of tuning to make exactly what you want. Like flickering, etc. But it's a start.

I did look at the first half of the trailer. There were two types of projector scene's I saw. The first was looking at the viewer and the light was blocked. The second was the smoke/dust with flicker.

It wasn't meant to be a complete solution. Just give an idea of a way. Mix it with volume noise, and flicker and I would think you would be close.

I think you could easily modify this to come up with the dusty look. You could also actually add dust/TP particles into the scene.

Good luck!

thanks having a play, thinking particles a bit heavy for me, going to try exporting scene to after effects and using a particular light emiitter
