The Great Big Beautiful Project Keaton Blogroll

Wow! What a month it’s been. I hardly know where to start .

Project Keaton has been a daily thrill over on the Project Keaton Tumblr page as well as here on The Pictorial, and with the project officially ending yesterday, I am delighted to post the our Great Big Beautiful Project Keaton Blogroll. The following is a list of every single contributor with links to their respective sites. If you haven’t been following Project Keaton on Tumblr, this is your chance to catch up on a month long of Buster Love. (Click here for a PDF of our blogroll_list.)

Silent film fans from all over the globe came out in droves to show their support for the project: England, Scotland, The Netherlands, Australia, Spain, South America and North America. The creative output has been fantastic. Thanks to every last blessed one of you for giving Buster something to smile about in October.

And so we’re officially signing off from Project Keaton with this special tribute video prepared by the Pictorial:

Project Keaton: Buskerfly Productions Tip Their Hat to Buster

Buskerfly Productions is truly delightful. This Boulder-based production company embraces the elements of classic film-making while utilizing the latest in modern technology, producing work that is of pristine, high-def quality while maintaining its integrity to the original medium that is their inspiration: silent comedy.

Buskerfly reached out to Project Keaton and was so kind as to edit a special clip from their silent feature, BUSKERS BOUNTY. Watch as they so effectively channel Keaton’s timelessly hilarious “hat scene” from his 1928 masterpiece STEAMBOAT BILL, JR. Many thanks to producers Philip Van Scotter and Abbey Pleviak for reaching out— and for their fabulous work!

Visit Buskerfly Productions to see more of BUSKERS BOUNTY, and to learn about their exciting upcoming projects!

and the original source of inspiration:

Project Keaton: John Bengtson's Buster Keaton and Film Noir

Silent film historian John Bentson is pretty much THE authority on filming locations of the silent masters. His holy trinity of silent comedy filming locations Silent Traces, Silent Echoes and Silent Visions are dazzling, in-depth histories of the films of Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd, respectively. His blog, Silent Locations, digs even deeper into the past, unearthing (with incredible precision) the exact locations of even the most obscure silent films.

His latest post Buster Keaton and Film Noir is proof of his sleuthing skills and we are proud to have him on board for Project Keaton!

Project Keaton: Jonathan Melville's Holyrood or Bust(er)

Edinburgh-based journalist Jonathan Melville has written for everyone from the Guardian to the Edinburgh Daily News and, as a true-blue cineaste, has just launched a classic film blog: Holyrood or Bust

In honor of Buster, he is temporarily calling his blog Holyrood or Bust(er) (<–clever, he?) and he will be reviewing many of the films showcased on Turner Classic Movies for their Keaton month. Which, by the way, is pretty darn impressive since TCM’s Keaton schedule will not be airing in the UK … He’s already got The General under his belt, so stop by and stay tuned!
