What is it?
The Norwich Puppet Theatre has a special showing of The Lost World (1925) with a completely new score written by Norwich’s rock project, The Shadow Committee. The Lost World is a 1925 silent film based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s book of the same name. It follows a group of explorers as they head to the lost world in search of dinosaurs.
Joshua Rayman, the man behind The Shadow Committee and the new score, says: “I chose The Lost World because it’s a silent film that is still watchable today. It has an intriguing storyline and the stop-motion animation was very impressive for the time.”
With a fresh, contemporary score, the film is set to bring people into a world of silent film they never knew existed. The score features guitars, pianos and synths, all of which are brought together by heavy bass and drums.
