[audio] My four part interview w/ David Shepard – Film Preservationist.


David Shepard is the ultimate film preservationist of silent films.
From Chaplin to Keaton, to DeMille, to Gance –  the knowledge and skill of David Shepard is in every restored silent classic.
Without his passion in keeping the images of silent film alive – many of the great works, and lesser known works of silent actors/directors would be lost for ever.

David kindly allowed me to interview him across a range of subjects.
From his childhood ambitions, to preserving Chaplin and Keaton films in the presence of the men themselves – this is a journey worth listening to.
