Hold your horses, Hitch. We know you’re as anxious as we are to get the For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon underway, but we have a few housekeeping duties to take care of first.
Bloggers, we need to know if you will be participating. I know we asked you before, but now we’re getting ready to tell the media about our project to raise funds to stream The White Shadow at the National Film Preservation Foundation website and record the score by Michael Mortilla. So we need to take names in earnest. Tell us who you are, where you blog (name of blog and location), and what you think you might want to write about. Remember anything to do with Graham Cutts, Alfred Hitchcock, film preservation, film scores, silent films, etc. etc. etc. is fair game. The idea is to provide people with a sense of interest and excitement and get across why this project and film preservation in general are so important.
Just leave the information in the comments section on this post, and we’ll keep a running tally. Get your friends to join in, too. The more people we have spreading the word and displaying the donate link, the more successful we can be. If you know any organization or company that might like to become a sponsor of the blogathon, send them my way, too.
OK, Hitch, I’ve lit the fuse. Hold your ears!
