Hi folks,

We would love your support for our documentary film about the first "talkies" films and how they were produced.

Working with the Warner Brothers back in the 1920's, Stanley Watkins of Bell Labs was instrumental in coordinating the many complex technical and logistic challenges of the very first "talkie" theatrical releases.

Stanley was later tasked with learning the first electronic talking machine - the VODER - that would be presented at the New York World's Fair and San Francisco Exhibitions in 1939. https://youtu.be/0rAyrmm7vv0

Along with current Bell Labs president Marcus Weldon and Stanley's daughter Barbara Witemeyer, I'm an executive producer of this film. Late last year (2018) I presented at the AES in New York. http://www.aes.org/events/145/historical/?ID=6164

Please check it out. You won't be disappointed!

We welcome and encourage your support of our film. Whatever amounts you can do to help us complete this film is seriously appreciated. $1 or $100 are both great!
