Professor Ted! An Appreciation of the Art of the Motion Picture

 —  —

O & J Roberts Middle School, Rt 23, Pottstown, PA

NEW! An Appreciation of the Movies

Ted The Fiddler, instructor

With all the wiz-bang computer graphics and surround sound nowadays, we tend to forget that the movies started out with just a camera and an idea. Join Ted The Fiddler, local entertainer, film collector, as we look at several aspects of the movies and how we got to where we are today. Since every show should start with a cartoon, we'll start off with a short history of theatrical animation. Then we'll take a look at the art of silent film, followed by the Short Subject and finish off with a night at the movies in the prime of the studio system with a feature film.

Ted The Fiddler Strolling about...

 —  —

Historic Sugartown Festival, Sugartown, PA

Come see the historic buildings, museum displays, taste the food, see and buy from the crafters. I'll be playing the fiddle all over the grounds and another group will also be playing over by the food area. I'm not sure who yet. Last year I think it was a bluegrass band. It's a very nice affair though. Well worth a trip over behind Malvern, PA.
