Please join us on Friday, March 13, for the 4th annual Public History Graduate Symposium, as we explore “History Through a Prism: Untold Stories,” with keynote speaker and Emmy-winning aviation filmmaker Adam White, in the Wright State University Student Union Apollo Room, 9:00-4:30.
Adam White graduated from Wright State University’s film program in 1995 with a degree in Motion Picture Production. He has won regional Emmy awards for several PBS documentary films. With over 15 years of experience, Adam has filmed on four continents, working in film, HD and beyond. In addition to working as a Director of Photography, Adam is also an experienced SteadiCam owner/operator. Adam White’s film company is Hemlock Films, an award-winning, full-service production company specializing in commercial film, aviation video production and Steadicam. The company produces high quality, professional works from industrials and commercials, to aviation videos, to mainstream feature films. Based out of his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Adam is also a licensed private pilot. According to Adam, aviation cinema means great storytelling; to dive deep into a story’s true nature and reveal its details and emotion.
The symposium will be a thought-provoking day of panels featuring the research of Wright State University Public History graduate students and networking with other public history professionals.
This event is free and open to the public, and free and convenient parking is available at the Student Union. Although the symposium is free, we are requesting RSVPs by March 6 for the purpose of estimating seating and catering needs.
