This is really an event you don't want to miss out on. I was lucky enough to attend the Sunrise performance last year at the IMPAC film festival and I was blown away.
Here's a brief run-down of what to expect.
Sunrise - Outdoor Film and Sound Experience Featuring Jacob Israel and Skyline on Fire
What do you get when you combine a classic silent black-and-white film from the 1920’s and the electronic sounds from our digital age? A mesmerizing eclectic experience where live music and sound brings a vintage film back to life.
The Open Window School of Visual Communication, who is synonymous with originality and innovation, will once again be the talking point with this production to be screened on Friday evening 2 November at their campus in Irene, Pretoria.
We invite all culture addicts and lovers of music, movies and life to join us for the screening of the silent film “Sunrise”, accompanied by a live original soundtrack in quadrophonic sound created and performed by Jacob Israel and A Skyline on Fire. F.W Murnau directed “Sunrise” and stars silent film actors George O’Brian and Janet Gaynor.

So this week was field trip time! We all boarded the magical silver Mahindragon and singing merrily, we drove to Johannesburgtownville to go experience the magic of Michel Gondry's Home Movie Factory in the Maboneng precinct.
It's quite an amazing setup not only in terms of the physical sets and effort that has been put into making the factory a reality, but the meticulously planned and well guided journey of film making is an insane amount of fun!
A good time, i would venture to say, was had by all!
Oh, and the movie we made? Well, it's called How did the Evil Joburg Space Cops die? Vol.2
