Guide to find all the Reels for the Director´s Commentary

General Tips
  • First of all, if you game crashes DO NOT START IT AGAIN! You will lose all your settings, ini tweaks and some collected Film Reels.
    First delete the "running.ini" from C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\BioshockHD\Bioshock
    This file usually gets deleted everytime you close the game but when it crashes it can´t do that.
    The game resets to default settings if it detects the file while starting.

  • If you missed a Film Reel don´t worry! You can load an older save, collect the missed reel, save again and load a newer save. The reel will be available in the Menu.

  • If you dont want to collect the reels or some got deleted after a crash you can unlock them this way: (credit goes to Samum)
    Open the Bioshock.ini located in c:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\BioshockHD\Bioshock\
    Search for the following lines and change them from False to True like this:
    WelcomeDeveloperFilm=False --> WelcomeDeveloperFilm=True


Welcome to Rapture
After your first encounter with the big daddy the reel will be on the stage he originally jumps down on before killing the splicer.
After encountering your first little sister there will be a gathers garden that will open up on the other side of the room. The reel is against the wall on the left side of the garden.
Neptunes Bounty
The real is in the very last room after defeating Peach. The room where you see the ghosts saying "no fontain ♥♥♥♥s you" XD the reel will be on the bottom shelf to the left when looking back at the door from inside the room. You will need incinerate to melt the ice to reveal its location left. The reel is located on the bed.
Farmers Market
This reel is in the distillery for the wine that you will need to venture to in order to get distilled water to make the lazerous vector. Explore around the bottom floor until you see a hut surrounded by water. The reel is in this room against the wall. You can also access this room from the 2nd floor of the distillery by crouching through an opening into the room with 3 trap bolts blocking the original entrance.
Fort Frolic
After completing Cohens masterpiece, make your way back to fleet hall and upstairs in the projection room (Where Cohen said he wasn't ready for you yet right before the Finnegan piano scene) The reel will be on the desk to the left as you enter.
This reel is pretty straight forward and will be spotted underneath the bomb you need to assemble in the workshop area.
Rapture Central Control
After defeating Andrew Ryan, the reel will be on the desk to the left of the Ryan came out of.
Apollo Square
Right before you take the bulkhead to Point Prometheus in the same room as the bathysphere. The reel will be on a couch to the left as you enter that room with the bathysphere in front of you.
Point Prometheus
(This one took me FOREVER to find) This reel is located in the Little Wonders area (where you collect the scent pheraneums). It is downstairs in room 1 to the left. The reel is located on the bed.
Proving Ground
This reel is located in the final room right before you fight Atlas and after you've dealt with the big daddy and escorting the little sister around. The reel will be located against the right wall right as you walk in right by the U-Vent machine.
That's all of them. If you have any questions feel free to post comments. I did this cause I have had troubles finding some of them and there was nothing online so I figured I would just buckle up and find them myself and post a guide.
Found a post from /u/volf1234 from reddit where he/she posted the Locations for the Collectibles and decided to share it here.

Apologies...But i am still having issues..So if anyone can help, please do so ^^
I followed the instructions you gave, only to find out that in my Bioshock.ini file there are no such lines in order to change the "false" to "true".

As a result i cannot alter them the way you've suggested,funny part is that i've found on a different path a file named "DeveloperFilms" and in there i can see that :

I've tried to change the 0s to "true" but still, nothing happened...

Any chance that i am not the only one out there with this problem ? Appreciate your time reading this. Thanks ^^

Thank you very much. There are so many film canisters laying around in this game, I wasn't sure if I could find them all. Great guide!

@IceTee thanks for checking that! I was missing the reel after the first Little Sister encounter but I was able to travel back there on my current save. Cheers!
