  1. A trip down Memory lane

    Hello all, Did you attend the 1964-65 World Fair ? Does it hold a special place in your memories ? Do you currently live in New York and consider its changing landscape ? My name is Charlotte. I'm a graduate student pursuing a Masters in Media Studies at the New School in New York. I am currently in production of a short documentary on the 1964-65 World Fair. I'm showcasing Flushing Meadows Corona Park as it is now, while focusing on the people that attended the fair. My interest lies in their memories, their subjectivity; what that time felt like then, what it means now, how thinking of the fair then and now weaves it all together. It's a mix of oral history of the fair and essayist documentary filmmaking. To put it simply, I'd just love to hear about your experience attending the fair. The 1964-65 World Fair and what it evokes fascinates me and I am obviously not the only one. I'm especially interested in hearing what it means to you. I'll be conducting interviews in the near future and I'm looking for more voices. It's exciting for me to see the community that's been created here and its emphasis on sharing of memories and pictures. In a way, that's what my film is about. Would you be interested in sharing your story ? Please come forward, I'll be happy to tell you about me, and what has lead me to this project that is very dear to me ! Mostly, I'll be excited to hear your account of the World Fair. I'd so appreciate your help. I can't wait to hear from you ! Feel free to contact me on facebook (Charlotte Prager), by email (charprgr@gmail.com), or give me a call (646 784 7780). Thank you and hope you are having a lovely day. Let's talk about the fair ! Best, Charlotte
  2. Hi everyone, Thought some of you might like to check out my new short documentary WORLD FAIR, now available on home-use DVD from Amazon: http://amzn.to/12AuE44 WORLD FAIR premiered in April at the Independent Film Festival Boston, where it won the Audience Award for Best Short Film. Very exciting! Please forgive the plug - just hoping to share my first film with viewers far and wide. Thanks! Amanda www.worldfairfilm.com
  3. Hi everyone, I posted about this topic in the Introductions section but am hoping to start a larger conversation here. Forgive for the cross-post! I'm a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn NY, and wanted to let you all know about my new documentary film, WORLD FAIR. WORLD FAIR is a short documentary about memory, amateur cinematography, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The film incorporates archival Kodachrome footage from the fair, and focuses on the world's fair memories of five, lovely characters, now in their eighties and nineties, living in New York and Connecticut. (The title is an intentional play on words! I'm interested in how the fair helped visitors imagine an attractive, hopeful, modern world.) This film has been my labor of love for the past year and is nearly ready for the big screen. As of this posting I am in the FINAL WEEK of fundraising to finish WORLD FAIR on Kickstarter. I would be so grateful for the support of folks in this community. I have until March 19 to reach my mimimum goal - and every bit helps. I held a work-in-progress screening recently at the Museum of the City of New York, and I look forward to bringing the finished film to communities across the country in months ahead. The film has been invited to make an exciting premiere this spring... but before that can happen, I need to reach my fundraising goal. You can learn more about WORLD FAIR and watch a 3-minute project video right here: http://kck.st/XojgEt I would be so grateful for your contributions! If you'd like to know more about the film, host a screening of the film, or suggest potential funders, drop a note on this page, or email me at amanda@wickedelicate.com. Thank you! Amanda
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn NY, and I'm pleased to let you know about my new film, WORLD FAIR. This film has been my labor of love for the past year and is nearly ready for the big screen. WORLD FAIR is a short documentary about personal memory, amateur cinematography, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The film incorporates colorful archival footage from the fair, and focuses on the world's fair memories of five, lovely characters (now in their eighties and nineties) living in New York and Connecticut. I'm raising some essential finishing funds on Kickstarter and would be so grateful for the support of folks in this community. I have until March 19 to reach my mimimum goal - and every bit helps. I held a work-in-progress screening recently at the Museum of the City of New York, and I look forward to bringing the finished film to communities across the country in 2013. You can learn more about WORLD FAIR and my team and watch a 3-minute project video right here: http://kck.st/XojgEt Please consider making a contribution. I would be so grateful for your support!
