Ridgewood NJ, the lost art of silent films is not lost on Director Jennifer Linch, with a perfect score the film captures and every emotion with facial expressions and character dramatization telling the story of a kidnapping, murder and revenge.
A silent film is in short a film with no synchronized recorded sound. In silent films , the plot was often conveyed by the use of title cards, written indications of the plot and key dialogue lines. The idea of combining motion pictures with recorded sound is nearly as old as film itself, but because of the technical challenges involved, the introduction of synchronized dialogue became practical only in the late 1920s with the perfection of the Audion amplifier tube and the advent of the Vitaphone system.
Silent filmmakers pioneered the art movie as an art form to the extent that virtually every style and genre of film-making of the 20th and 21st centuries has its artistic roots in the silent era. The silent era was also a pioneering one from a technical point of view.
Charlie Chaplin, one of the geniuses of the silent era, once said that “Cinema is pantomimic art”. The lack of sound meant no dialog, so your body language and facial expressions had to do all the talking. Many actors hence adopted hyperbole in their acting. You may notice many actors exaggerate their actions in silent films – you fall, it has to be dramatic; you are sad, you have to be melodramatic; you are falling in love, you have to bat your eye-lashes and blush! Exaggeration was the key.
In Jennifer Linch’s UNSAID a silent action film shot though the eyes of the main character, an under cover police officer who has his girl fiend kidnapped and murdered. You can feel first the love than the anguish of the main character as he finds his murdered lover. Linch also stars in the movie playing the love interest for the protagonist in wholesome goodness but also showing her dark side as the evil antagonist’s menacing girlfriend.
The film climax is an over the top martial arts battle when the hero seeks out his revenge .
Jennifer Linch is currently casting the feature film ” KUNG FU GHOST” which will be shot on location in Toronto and San Diego in January.
