Re-imagining lost shots based on written reports

For every short rediscovered, more material is reported lost. In addition, a lot of films are accessible only as words on paper in production papers, press reviews or censor reports. To reactivate these words as images, I embarked on a project to restage missing footage based on the original production papers housed in the Mack Sennett Collection of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Beverly Hills.
