Over the last two weeks, we have met with Terry Harbin, the founder of Ithaca-Made Movies, Aaron Prichel, and Diana Riesman from the Ithaca Motion Picture Picture Project to learn more about silent film history in Ithaca and to learn about how they are trying to keep this history alive.  Terry shared his expert knowledge about the history of silent film in Ithaca and he gave us some great contacts that have organized events recently. Diana had some interesting stories to share with us about her work to create  a museum about silent film in Ithaca in Stewart Park and showed us a bunch of old photos from Wharton Studio in Stewart Park.  Aaron let us shoot footage of his store in the Ithaca Commons where he has old movie posters on display from the various movies shot in Ithaca and we purchased some DVDs and pamphlets to help us create our documentary.
