Little Annie Rooney
Surround Sound Premiere With Modern Soundtrack! Nitrate Restoration In 4K High Definition!
LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY
Co-presented by the Mary Pickford Foundation and Seeking our Story
The process of restoring and scoring this LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY took several years. The original tinted nitrate print in Mary Pickfords personal collection at the Library of Congress, made from the camera negative in 1925, was brought to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences archive in Los Angeles.
Through the Mary Pickford Foundations extraordinary, multi-year partnership with AMPAS, the Academy Film Archive preserved the film photo-chemically, creating new 35mm preservation masters and prints.
The preservation master was then scanned at 4K resolution so that the MPF, in cooperation with AMPAS, could create a digital version, evaluating the film frame by frame, removing dirt and other signs of deterioration to perfectly match the original nitrate tints and tones.
Then, through the MPF Composition Program at Pepperdine University, an extremely gifted young composer, Andy Gladbach, was chosen to create a new sound track for the film. Mentored by professionals, Gladbach was joined by a 16 piece orchestra that included three percussionists, as well as a conductor and engineers, to record his original music.
The end result combines and showcases the finest work of artists, craftspeople and musicians from this century and from 1925.
Program begins with a panel discussion.
