Silent Era

Harold Lloyd Freshman

Why Watch? We’re celebrating the 100th anniversary of Harold Lloyd‘s appearance in films by sharing some filmmaking tips from the stunt man/actor/director/producer and by showcasing what is probably his most famous short film appearance. As usual, Lloyd plays the underdog trying to become popular on campus, using his trademarked energy and comedic physicality to create a simple, hilarious story. What will it cost? Only 9 minutes.

HitRECord is such a brilliant project – one of the few that really understands crowdsourcing and the artistic merit found by people not on the payroll of the majors. HitRECord produced this short, and everyone involved deserves praise. It may be a hallmark of their ideals, but it’s also a serious reminder that movies are the art that combines all arts.
