SDHS Book Talk

The Stratford & District Historical Society (2019 version) continues to present new events in the community. To start the new year off on January 17th, local author, Dean Robinson, presented a talk around his new book “Not the last waltz and other Stratford stories”.

In an effort to contribute to the development of more video content of local history, I recorded the event, edited it and uploaded to the organization’s new YouTube Channel.

The six minute video captures the flavour of the talk and in a brief on-camera interview offers Dean an opportunity to outline his views of writing in general and this book in particular.

I shot the video on a DLSR at 1080p and while some of the talk is in a darkened room, I think it expresses the nature of the event effectively.

While this is the latest in a number of projects for SDHS (2019), I have been working on a short-format series entitled “Historically Speaking”, that I hope to begin releasing in February 2020.
