Last Two 'Inventing the Movies' Talks for 2008
I'm giving my final two presentations about Inventing the Movies for the year. The first is this Wednesday at the Museum of Science in Boston, at 7 PM; the second is December 10th at the Portsmouth Public Library in New Hampshire, at 5:30 PM. Both are free -- and if you're in the area (or have friends who are), perhaps you'll attend.
This is the same talk I've given recently at Disney, Netflix, Google, Industrial LIght & Magic, and the Rome Film Festival. There are lots of movie clips and historic photos. The talk does three things:
- Presents the complete technological history of Hollywood, in 45 minutes or less
- Explores the barriers that innovators face when they try to introduce new ideas to an established industry
- Challenges your knowledge of movie trivia.
