MHC Video: Opening Eyes, Ears, and Minds
This spring, MHC was honored to take part in a partnership with the Towson University Electronic Media & Film Department’s Corporate Video Class, under the deft hand of Dr. David Reiss. Teams of students were paired up with nonprofits to create short video presentations which tell each organization’s narrative. Not only does this provide essential educational and real-world experience for graduating seniors, but creates dynamic content that we hope will raise awareness about our work across the state.
It was a challenge to choose from our many worthy programs, but we focused efforts on three: MHC’s Chautauqua living history series, One Maryland One Book, our state-wide reading and discussion program, and Maryland History Day. Our filmcrew interviewed partners and participants in Calvert, Montgomery, Carroll, and Cecil counties and Baltimore City.
Our gratitude to our student filmmakers, Edward Shirk and Sam Parker, and their professor, Dr. Reiss. Our thanks also goes out to MHC staff, especially Jayme Kilburn, all of our amazing interview subjects. Photographs used were taken by Ken Stanek, the College of Southern Maryland, and National History Day.
