Perform-along with silent films

Postby swilk » Sun Sep 20, 2015 8:09 pm

Apparently it used to be a practice, in pre-sound days, to have actors "perform" the speaking parts, so that there was actual dialogue you could hear. It also let you add dialogue in addition to what appeared on the intertitles. I'm sure that they added sound effects, Foley-like, at the same time.

It would be sort of like the Rocky Horror or Musical Episode of Buffy things, only in this case actually adding something significant to the experience that otherwise wouldn't be there -- sound. I think people would get into something like this.

I'd suggested this for 20,000 leagues, but it would work better with a shorter film.
