A welcome relief from Air. Buy with confidence, fans! Although, the two new "main" score choices are just as headscratchingly rotten and inappropriate as the Air score. Flicker Alley should have used their money for a re-recording of the Robert Israel score with Serge's narration.


I wonder if this is a French thing. "The Passion of Joan of Arc" got an orchestral & celestral-sounding chorus, which sounds fantastic on its own, but I just wonder if it is right for the film. Then, the Jean Cocteau's version of "Beauty and the Beast" got a full-scale opera lip-synced to the film! The French clearly love this kind of gimm..I mean, scores.

Did the French hire Phillip Glass to wallpaper Dracula with irrelevant noodling?

There is one and a half other Melies that Lobster managed to render in 3D - actual true 3d because they filmed with two cameras.

I saw the unintentional Melies 3-D films at the Telluride film Festival, and they were quite fun. I see that the Serge Bromberg presentation at this year’s San Francisco silent film festival involves 3-D, so I expect they may turn up there.

There is a Kickstarter to translate Melies autobiography into English:

Can't people even publish a book these days without a fundraiser? I'm not against this book or someone trying, I'm just amazed that the existing channels couldn't cover this.

Print publishing is not flush with money the way it once was.

Generally speaking, it's a good way to measure interest and to cut out the middle-man; shipping to stores/warehouses, etc.

If they're self-publishing and it's an autobiography, that should mean few photos, so it should be cheap to put together. I don't know why they need a fundraiser then, because you don't have to print them all at once but one at a time for print on demand. I have friends doing novels this way, and they don't have to do kickstarter campaigns to get them published. Hollywood Heritage is going to be self-publishing a history of the Museum with lots of photos, and though we don't have a lot of money, we don't need a kickstarter/go fund me/etc campaign to do it. Have they heard of Amazon's CreateSpace?

The quality of the print and the cloth hard cover are not available from CreateSpace.

There's also blurb and lulu as well, and they print on photo quality paper.

Is this the 2001 A Space Odyssey thread?
