LONG BEFORE "THE ARTIST"...
Atlanta filmmaker Milford Thomas' CLAIRE is a 53-minute black and white silent film shot on an antique hand-crank 35mm (Mitchell Standard) camera by Jonathan Mellinger. The film toured internationally, opening festivals in Milan, Brussels, Montreal and the U.S., always accompanied by the "Orchestra de Lune," a live 11-piece chamber orchestra performing an original score by composer / conductor Anne Richardson.
First screening with a mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ!
