Kickstarter for Five Silent Films!

Ben Model just tweeted about this. He said he'd pledge for it if he wasn't already on board to score it! 😂
Read the description. So totally cool. The films were sold as a package in 1917, so we will be seeing them exactly as they were shown 100 years ago. And all the films survive. This is very exciting.

That is fantastic! And it will have a good score since Ben Model is doing it. Worthy project indeed—I'll probably contribute a little.

I'm going to try to, also. I've never contributed to one, and I feel strongly about it!

Oh man, I missed this! Hope it'll still be possible to buy the DVD.

I hope so, too, since I was not able to donate, either!

Yes, I'm sure it will be.
