Oh, do I wish I was in California at the end of the month.
I am on the other side of the country.

The show was really wonderful, and was a true celebration of David’s life. For those who weren’t there, the highlight was seeing 16mm color footage of David as a child, as he played with a film camera. Apparently the footage was saved in the nick of time by Serge Bromberg. I've uploaded footage of Joe Rinaudo treating the audience to the newly restored American Fotoplayer. The Fotoplayer was used to narrate many of David Shepard’s DVD releases, and was used at this event to narrate films from David’s Collection. Hope you all enjoy.

Correction...the home movie footage of David Shepard came from me. I provided this to Serge for the AMPAS and SFSFF programs. This comes from about a 5-min film I found in a can marked "David 1942-43" that was in David's collection. Library of Congress scanned it for me. If I get the OK of the family, I plan to put the entire thing on youtube.

Thanks for doing this. Please let us know when it will be uploaded, some of us don't have the means to travel to film events or to honour the ones who make all those wonderful silent films breathe a new life.
