UCLA: UCLA to restore student films involving The Doors’ Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison

UCLA: UCLA to restore student films involving The Doors’ Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison. “The pair, who met on campus when Morrison was a senior and Manzarek was a graduate student, became household names by the late 60s, along with bandmates Robby Krieger and John Densmore, and their early artistic endeavors as movie makers are at risk of being forgotten as time takes its toll on the original reels….With this in mind, the UCLA Film and Television Archive launched the Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison Preservation Project. The campaign being conducted on UCLA Spark, UCLA’s crowdfunding platform, began Feb. 12 on what would have been Manzarek’s 80th birthday. It closes April 1. To date, nearly $40,000 has been raised.”
