Carpenter, Margot Thomas Comma; or, the Comma that Didn't Below Anywhere Life Skills- Other,
Media- Film,
Multicultural- Other
Thomas Comma (24 minutes), an animated film based on a story by poet Martha Baird, is the charming, humorous, and also sophisticated adventure of a lonely comma looking for the right sentence--that which truly represents him in this world. This 2D film will not only delight and inspire children and adults alike, but also encourage and educate them. "We're all of us like commas," wrote Ms. Baird, "looking for the right sentence." Following the film, Ken Kimmelman, Emmy Award winning filmmaker (Imageryfilm.com), gives an exciting talk on the making of the film and its meaning.

Crocker, Keith World War One As Seen Through Hollywood's Lens History,
Media- Film,
Visual Arts- Other
Here is the perfect presentation for the centennial of the war that was supposed to end all wars. With this program we use vintage film clips of both silent and early sound film excursions into the subject of WWI, starting with the propaganda films of D.W. 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. The audience was captivated, all eyes were on the screen. All the drama at the beginning and the end was totally unexpected. Great job Mr. Director. I never watch War Movies; but this program kept my interest. Highly Recommended! Our Patrons can't stop talking about it. Keith keep your programs coming, they are the Very Best !!!

Crocker, Keith Lost in Laughter with Laurel & Hardy History,
Media- Film,
Media- Other
In case the Marx Brothers didn’t leave you breathless with laughter, then the antics of Laurel & Hardy will. This classic comedy team, who made the transition from silent to sound films, seems to always tickle the funnybone of America. Long before Abbott & Costello, Laurel & Hardy left audiences laughing in the aisles with their subtle yet sure brand of slapstick and tom foolery. In this loving tribute, we will see one of their classic comedy shorts, either The Music Box or a condensed version of Sons of the Desert. And, as always, a biographical overview and memorabilia show will round out the proceedings. Once again, this is a 90 minute program complete with a 16mm film presentation.

We will watch one of their classic silent short comedies, Do Detectives Think from 1927. It was this short that solidified the classic persona they would adapt and in term would make them the most recognizable comedy teams in history. This program uses DVD.
