I thought that the photos were made from a projection screen. But that´s not the case: the camera is looking directly on the film, inside the projector.

Yepp, that's how it works.

I think that many of us have already all the necessary stuff (besides the controller for automatizing the shooting).

Klaus, I wouldn't worry much about an automatic controller. Just use two remote controls pressed in turn and you're done. As the projector might do a full magazine in less than a minute you need to stay close for resupply anyway and thus an auto controller is more of a gimmick: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_QXqY6-vMU&feature=related

It might be useful though, to look around for an appropriate diffusor glas rather than just some plastic cover to shield heat and direct light from the slide. There are probably a lot of readily available kits to be found once starting to look around. Something like this: http://fotonovum.de/temp/layout/uk/default.asp?BID=002&PID=001&ME=001
