Twenty years after it was completed I remastered and re-edited a student film entitled The Burglar Alarm.
It was an interesting process for me to take work completed twenty years ago in high school and approach it fresh. It is also interesting that I found enough value in it to want to return to it so many years later.
The most important element in transforming a poorly edited student movie into something of a keepsake or memento was my good fortune at having my old collaborator Alan compose new music for the movie. I have been most pleased with the results.
Those of us who worked hard on the original as a class project will soon gather together to view the results.
