Silent Cinema Redux

January 27, 2010 — Leave a comment

I just ran into an interesting project from TheAuteurs.

Taking footage from early cinema and silent films, SILENT CINEMA REDUX invites musicians to create new soundtracks and audio-visual remixes: recorded live and on the fly with minimal post-production work, each group, band or solo artist will perform a 5-20 minute piece with their film projected behind them.

sorry, couldn’t help myself.

Anyway, I read some of the people were thinking of working with The Birth of a Nation, I wonder what music they will use for this redux… I’m looking forward to it!

Anyway, if you are interested in participating, head over here.

Happy Belated Xmas, Amy!
it’s here, it’s here!

After ages on my Amazon Wishlist, my dad made it happen. *laughs*

I’m still hyped over Marion winning. She just wrote a bit of Oscar History here people… She’s become the second actress to win for a non-English role, 2nd to Sophia Loren since 1961 for Two Women. The first winner for a non-English role of the millennium… and the first in French.

My Marion… our Marion (Lainey and Julyssa’s too) just became a major player in Film History. It has been the longest 10 months for Julyssa and me since we saw La Vie en Rose in Sweden. It’s been such a wild ride with ups and downs, and keeping our fingers crossed… we are so happy for her.

Viva Marion! Thanks for the wonderful performance you’ve given to your audience!
