My film 'The Magic Lantern'

A celebration of the magic and wonder of early cinema. The film consists of clips of magical moments from the early silent era, a time in film history when imagination and experimentation were the life blood of the medium. When the possibilities of cinema seemed endless and the excitement of creation was palpable. Running time 30 mins.
