Out of interest, can an orchestra make a contribution, if they think they will otherwise lose a lucrative project? Or is a named participant in the project not allowed to get involved?

A named participant can contribute anything they like - ANY named participant, including the people doing the campaign. Kickstarter doesn't care where the money comes from. But people should keep contributing because they don't get the full amount - you have to now cover the Kickstarter fees and in the case of this amount of money, that's probably over four grand.

It kind of defeats the purpose of crowdfunding if they are pledging their own cash.

Crowdfunding on Kickstarter is different - you get zip if you don't reach your goal. So the decision is always how do we reach the goal when that reach seems impossible, so that the crowdfunding entity gets what has been pledged thus far? That can happen in many ways and it happens all the time. And when a campaign gets a huge sudden surge, it shows people it can fund and that motivates the contributors. I have no idea what happened here and it doesn't really matter. Cover them fees smile

My friends I mentioned earlier who are on a cruise with John Mauceri aboard told me today they were able to pass my message to him on Sunday. All they can report is that he seemed interested and said he'd check the Intrada site. Could be the Kickstarter had already reached its target before he got to see it.

Who knows, still a brilliant scheme on your part weather it did the job or not.

This evening I watched my DVD of DMFM because I was curious about how the music is spotted. There are some long passages that are not scored and Tiomkin makes dramatic use of the music as it is reintroduced. Really well done.

Another thing that surprised me (at first) was the intermission card. I thought this was strange for a normal length feature until I remembered it was in 3D and an intermission was required back then to change both reels!

I saw the film in 3D as part of 3D festival many years ago. The camerawork makes even more sense when seen this way.

I first saw DMFM on TV, and, except for the murder scene, with the light glinting on those scissors, I thought the whole thing pretty stage bound, which is logical, since it was based on a hit Broadway play.

But, when I finally saw it in 3-D, I was stunned. Hitchcock avoids all those typical shots of things being thrown at the audience, and instead concentrates on the depth of his images. In the flat version, Milland is focused on Kelly’s evening bag, intending to steal her latch key. But, in the 3-D version, her bag is literally suspended over the audience, emphasizing that suspenseful distance from Milland. Masterful. (And, of course, the murder scene is even more effective!)

Yes, of all the 3-D films of the period, DMFM is the best. Too bad it was never shown generally in that format, since by then the fad had passed. It’s really a revelation.

Really glad this score is being recorded! I look forward to hearing it, and I intend to contribute to many more.

Congrats to all involved!

I too hope this is the first of many more CD'S in this series! smile

Over at the Intrada forum, Roger is holding a poll to get an idea of what score to do for the next Kickstarter campaign. As of this post, The Man Who Knew Too Much is leading with 9 votes, followed closely by Jungle Book with 7 votes.

I can get behind either of those of course, but I'm so excited he's got Black Patch and Face of a Fugitive included TOGETHER on the poll! Fellow Goldsmith nuts, go VOTE!

FOAF/Black Patch is the perfect 2-header album if ever there was one.

Yup, and as a stretch goal to really get people donatin' (there should be room as each of those scores is just over half an hour): newly recorded Rambo: First Blood Part II orchestral end credits! (or alternatively/in addition: premiere recording of that awesome unique fanfare Doug heard at the Star Trek V sessions, which was abandoned after one rehearsal and before actual recording)

Why would you want what is pledged so far if you are going to have to cover the delta yourself? Why not just have a smaller goal to begin with which thus will have a lower Kickstarter processing fee?

As of this writing, the total is just under $48,000 and counting with 17 hours to go. How cool if this could hit $50K!
