It’s the first Friday in May!
These are the first Friday Videos in May!
“In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as ‘Wonderful London’. Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time.”
The effect is actually quite striking. Well done.
“This is the first episode of ‘Orson Welles’ Sketchbook’ in which he discusses his trips abroad and how he came to be an actor. Originally Aired: April 24, 1955.”
This link includes the full list of this series, which is like a video podcast from 1955. These are very interesting if you’re a Welles completist, and especially if (like me) you never knew these even existed before.
Happy Friday as always everybody.
