Take Part in a Film Restoration

by Mark Zimmer

Our friends at Milestone Film & Video are engaging on a major restoration project for Portrait of Jason, a ground-breaking documentary by Shirley Clarke that was one of the first no-holds-barred films about LGBT life.

Their project even has a Kickstarter page that offers the opportunity to get into the credits of the restored film.

Even if you're not inclined to help Milestone fund this restoration work (and they have done stellar work in the past), anyone interested in film should check out their YouTube video on the trials and tribulations they've had in finding workable film elements. Luckily, in this case there's a happy ending. See the video on the restoration work in Update #5 on the Kickstarter page. The deadline for contributing is Monday December 10, 2012; they're only a few thousand short of their goal.
