Weekend Ed. Quotes ~ June 20

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.

No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

filmjpegDid you know that the Library of Congress has more than one location?

There is a second location for the Library of Congress in Culpeper, Virginia. It houses the Packard Campus for media conservation – http://www.loc.gov/avconservation/

A childhood friend of mine is one of the archivists and he is involved in preserving silent films. Did you know that a majority of all of the silent film script writers and directors were women? There is additional information at this film describing the films and work of the National Film Registry:
Here is the link to a trailer for the documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea2tcWC2k0c

Here is a link to the full documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVF4BKISrI8

Well worth your time to view and learn about the great work of film preservation.
