Hope you are well.
 
One of our partners is currently working on the 3D conversion of classic black and white movies.

He has secured the rights and is in the middle of production of several Charlie Chaplin movies, which will form one 90 minute 3D movie titled “Chaplin 3D - Little Tramp´s Adventure”. The 3D looks amazing, much better than most of the conversions which were shown in theaters so far. 
 
We are looking for a US deal or possible worldwide deal (excluding German speaking and Turkey). The producer of the 3D version is in town now, and we could show you during or in the days after AFM a short demo reel with the 3D footage in a theatre from DCP. 
 
Please let us know if this would be interesting for you. We would be happy to arrange a screening.
 
Best regards,
 
Michael
