Crocker, Keith 3-D MOVIES - Comin' at Ya! History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Theater
When Hollywood received competition from the television studios in the 1950's, they pulled out a secret weapon called 3-D. Wearing a pair of blue and red cardboard glasses literally allowed the images on the movie screen to jump right off the screen and right into the audiences lap. 3-D was a process that was far from perfect, but for a brief period of time it was a rage country wide and gave some new excitement to the idea of going to the movies. Recently, 3-D has re-emerged and is again gaining in popularity and giving the couch potato audience a reason to rise out of their seats and come back to the movies. This program is one of the most complete you'll ever see in regards to the history of 3-D films and it includes a memorabilia show including posters and stills, plus a DVD presentation of trailers for films originally shot in 3-D.

Gray, Daniel “Anime Club 101” Media- Video,
Multicultural- Other,
Visual Arts- Cartooning
Watching anime is no longer exclusive to college dorm rooms or for home use. Anime is moving into the public library for young adults in the form of programs presented to these young patrons who wish to interact with fellow fans. Currently, the Upper Hudson Library System has encouraged the development of teen anime clubs in many of its 29 branch public libraries. Pioneering public libraries have embraced the idea of non-traditional library events such as mini-conventions. Among these in 2015, the main branch of the Schenectady Public Library held such an event at no cost to patrons. Included were various panels on comic books, cosplay and of course anime. Many public facilities are following this Japanese popular culture trend by helping teens form their own fan clubs at schools, public libraries, churches and colleges. This program serves as an introduction to anyone who wants to start such an anime club. Major topics presented includes: forming a club hierarchy, club constitution, use of library technology, public presentations rights, copyrights issues, content issues, planning for club field trips, and of course parental supervision and liability.

Here is the perfect presentation for the centennial of the war that was supposed to end all wars.

Griffith and Eric Von Strohiem as well as examining later films and made for TV productions dealing with the subject of the war and it's aftermath. This program explores the power of propaganda and it's importance during war time, as well as the repercussions of loaded and insightful imagery that is often used in times of conflict. Praise from Linda White of Elmont Public Library regarding World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens: Your presentation was Superb from the beginning to the end.
