The Marcel Perez Collection - DVD/Kickstarter

Postby Ben Model » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:10 am

In case anyone's interested, I've just launched a Kickstarter to fund a new DVD of rare comedy shorts starring and directed by Marcel Perez. Prints will be sourced from EYE Film and LoC.

If you're interested in making a pledge to help the project, click here to go to the Kickstarter page for details.

Thanks.

Great news, Ben. I'm on board.

Looks like you'll be funded in no time too, from the numbers of the pledges already up.

Keep up the fine work.

Best

Joe

Thanks. It's been a long progression building this up over the last couple of years, but very satisfying that I seem to have found a "wormhole" (if I may use that word on television) to distributing rare silent films on DVD. The Perez project hit 100% funding in just under 24 hours, and is currently $500 over goal, with 25 days to go.

One more film has just been added to the DVD project. Reel 2 of "Camouflage" (rel. Nov 1918) has just been preserved by the LoC and will be digitized for the project. Reel 2 is all that survives and it's quite funny.

9 days to go . . .
