The Lost World

Live score performance by Dark Room Notes

Dir: Harry O. Hoyt. 64 minutes, USA, silent, 1925.

Choice Music Prize Nominees, Dark Room Notes will perform a specially composed contemporary soundtrack drawing from their signature sound to accompany this landmark silent film. Harry O. Hoyt’s black and white silent film was the first film adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel about a lost land of prehistoric creatures.

The 1925 feature based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s book is best known for its pioneering special effects and the stop-motion animation provided by Willis O’Brien (preceding his classic work on 1933’s King Kong). The innovative combination of miniature animated creatures and live-action photography, completely dazzled audiences of the era. The Lost World was not only a great film but the predecessor of today’s Hollywood special effects-filled blockbusters.
