Silly idea. Nothing is ever orphaned. It is owned by the family etc. Internet search...silly. Think up your own new idea- don't just breath life into someone else's hard work no matter how old or unsearchable on google. Anyone could claim they "tried." I would understand that a filmmaker in school would want this as they have not lived enough to have their own original ideas. The school should look to the long road ahead for their students and be outraged about this. The way this is written it is clear the opinion of the writer.
