Silent Film 101 - Updates & Feedback

Post by BettyLouSpence »

This thread will serve as the place for any feedback (suggestions, questions, criticism, etc.) on the Silent Film 101 project. This is also where I'll post updates concerning this section. Unlike the other threads here, this one isn't locked to replies. Post away!

Just wanted to say that this is looking pretty good! Can't wait to see more added!
I actually learned something already. I didn't know that Bronson was hand picked by Peter Pan author James Barrie to star in the film!

After realizing just how long-term this was going to be, I made the decision to widen the scope of this thread; it will now include updates concerning the status of the 101 section. The actor, actress and director threads will easily take months, I think, so they'll not have as much priority as the Tech thread and some more upcoming threads.

Thank you! That was probably the most difficult one I've written up so far. I wasn't expecting quite that much research, but got humbled pretty quickly.
