The History of Rock Concerts History,
Performing Arts- Other
Clive Young has been a concert industry journalist for more than 15 years, so The History of Rock Concerts offers an insider’s view of how rock concerts grew from Elvis performing in hayfields to the multi-million-dollar spectacles that the Rolling Stones and Madonna present today. Weaving facts, humorous anecdotes, video and PowerPoint together, this program highlights how concerts, like rock music, have always changed to reflect the times.

Special attention is paid to

  • The Beatles’ 1965 concert at Shea Stadium
  • Woodstock and its tragic sequel, Woodstock 1999
  • The epic charity event, Live Aid
  • The first rock concert
  • The top 10 biggest music events ever
  • How MTV influenced the modern rock show
  • Why tickets cost so much today
  • How a show is produced
  • Hearing protection tips

    As an added bonus, concert earplugs and hearing conservation pamphlets are provided free for all attendees to take home.

    EXCLUSIVE: While this program features considerable performance footage, The History of Rock Concerts features two video documentaries that are exclusive to this program, showing life behind-the-scenes on recent tours by Fleetwood Mac and The Who. These films can not be seen anywhere else!

    Homemade Hollywood: The Rise of Fan Films Media- Film,
    Media- Video,
    Performing Arts- Storytelling
    Fan films are a new phenomenon in today's popular culture. Regular people are creating their own flicks based on their favorite movies, books, TV shows and more, using video cameras and computers to create complex, unique films. Many fan films are now high-quality efforts, sometimes costing as much as $30,000 to produce!

    This program introduces audiences to some of the best fan films around, featuring Batman, Harry Potter, Superman, The Matrix, Snoopy, Darth Vader and more of the world's most famous characters.

    I am the author of the first book about fan films, Homemade Hollywood (Continuum, 2008) and run the daily fan film blog,, so basically I'm the leading expert on this unusual form of underground filmmaking.

    May The Fan Film Be With You Media- Film,
    Media- Video,
    Performing Arts- Storytelling
    May The Fan Film Be With You presents and discusses 15 of the best Star Wars fan films. In recent years, many movie fans have been inspired to make their own Star Wars films; using video cameras and powerful home computers for editing and special effects, these weekend directors have created a genre that became known as ‘fan films.’ Many of their homespun creations rival the original movies in quality and story, making these unusual films a permanent part of the Star Wars universe.

    Most of these films are quite rare and have not been seen anywhere except the internet, but this program will screen them the way they were meant to be seen, in full-quality video. Additionally, the program will discuss the history of the growing fan film movement and explore what compels these budding filmmakers to invest so much effort into their personal visions of the Star Wars mythology. All material screened will be appropriate for the whole family, but discussion will be aimed primarily at adults and young adults.

    $201- $350
    Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts History,
    Media- Film,
    Performing Arts- Theater
    Yikes: The History of Movie Stunts is a fast-paced sequel to my popular Kaboom: The History of Special Effects program, tracing the action-packed evolution of stunt work in movies.

    From car chases, explosions and leaping off bridges, to sword fights, motorboat jumps and hanging from helicopters, Hollywood stuntmen and women risk their lives daily to bring excitement to the silver screen.

    Starting in the early 1900s, the program follows a timeline of movie stunts throughout the ages, presenting some of the most spectacular acts ever put to celluloid while explaining the advancements in technology, training and safety that made them possible.

    Amazing stories and profiles reveal how and why stuntmen do what they do. What feats are they most afraid of? How do they focus when they know their next move could be their last?

    Illustrating the program are legendary stunts throughout film history, from the work of pioneers like Harold Lloyd, to clips from The French Connection, The Bourne Identity, The Road Warrior, Smokey and the Bandit, the James Bond series and more. Presented with plenty of “don’t try this at home” reminders, Yikes is an exciting program for all ages.

    $201- $350
