About three years ago the Pamela Green and Jarik van Sluijs of the PIC Agency optioned my book, Alice Guy Blaché:Lost Visionary of the Cinema, with the goal of making a documentary film which entitled Be Natural. The title harks back to the sign Alice had in her film studio, trying to coax actors used to using pantomime on the stage to emote with more restraint for the camera.
The Be Natural Kickstarter campaign has four days to go. Check out the kickstarter page before it's gone: they have wonderful images and film clips, showing what they will do to recreate the early days of cinema and who they plan to interview.
The film is getting some great press. Check them all out, and then DONATE.
Be a silent film hero and support the Be Natural Kickstarter campaign!
