Be a Star in a Silent Film!

After a great response last year, the Medford Community Silent Film is back for another round, and again we invite your help!  Last year for “Balloons, Boats and Bunglers,” we were amazed by what everyone submitted about their Medford journeys, so this year we want to see more of your great tricks, skills and talents.

Did you know Charlie Chaplin was an amazing roller skater? (Come to Chevalier Theatre on October 1st to watch the movie “The Rink” and you’ll see.)  Do you have a special hidden talent?  Now’s medfordjourney-iconyour chance to show it off.

  • Can you do a handstand?
  • Can you make funny faces?
  • Can you moonwalk?
  • Can you rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time?

The more creative the better.

Just make a short video clip of yourself, your friends, or your family showing off your skills.  Film something new, or pull something you already have.  Email your video to us at

The clips will be compiled into a short silent film to be accompanied by organist Peter Krasinski.  You’ll be right up on the big screen with Charlie Chaplin on October 1st as part of the “Chevalier Charades” Silent Movie Night.

Come on Medford, show us what you can do!!
