Before you head to the beach or the ball game, I just wanted to let you know --

  • I'm done synching up the piano and organ scores for the films
  • I've finished creating new main, credit and intertitles for films that needed any, and
  • I've also finished up any visual tweaks and minor edits needed for the films.
  • Also, Marlene is inches away from finishing up the DVD jacket design, and I'll be able to show you that after the weekend.

What remains to be done is the creation of the pre-film explanatory titles, credit titles for the DVD, and of course the DVD authoring.

I hope to have everything wrapped up by August 1st, and I will keep you posted on any changes or delays if they happen.

Have a great weekend!

PS – here's a frame grab of the Kodascope title that is at the head of THE WHIRLWIND (1922) with Joe Rock. Only a few frames of it survive, so it won't be on the DVD, but here it is in your inbox!
