A million projects.

I’m working on a million preservation/restoration projects right now, the vast majority of which are independent/experimental/artists’ films. I was thinking of posting a list of a bunch of them here, and having folks who are interested pick a couple of titles that interest them, and I’ll write a blog post about what’s going on with those specific projects, archivally speaking. I would probably throw in some production info on the films too, in cases where I have info worth repeating.

So hopefully this would not only be of potential interest to fans of this sort of thing, but also would give me “homework”, which I think would compel me to be a bit better about writing out descriptions of each project, something I’m a bit behind on at that moment.

What do you think? I’d have to limit it, though. Can’t write on a ton of ’em! Some will be very basic, some will be very elaborate. Comments?

In the meantime, here’s a picture of the inside of a can that contained a print of Confrontation at Kent State (1970) by Richard Myers et al.

  1. Mark, you're such an amazing writer about this stuff that I would love it if you opened up what you're working on. Long essays, short essays — anything you'd provide would be greatly helpful and appreciated.
