Accuracy in film making is a touchy subject. I had the pleasure of creating a teaser for 2017's forum at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
The History Film Forum aims to "...explore history on the screen and the state of film as public history, analyzing narrative film, documentaries, television shows, and this year, internet videos. After all, while the research, writing, and exhibitions of historians and curators shed new light on the past and engage many people every year, countless more connect with and learn about the past through movies." -Christopher Wilson, Executive Director and Forum Curator
Behind the scenes...
The idea was to use a simple visual approach that had the look and feel reminiscent of a filmstrip without being too literal. These are style frames developed as a guide for the design.
