Telling Digital Stories

HRT Logo FilmstripHistoric Richmond Town shares the American experience in many ways, including film and video. Over the past few years, we have become our own film production company.   We produces documentaries, short films, promotional videos and even commercials that share the stories of our diverse  American Life.  Digital storytelling is a wonderful way to reach people of all ages and backgrounds - especially when they can't visit us in person.  Film is one area - our online collections database, online publications are some others. We are excited to be part of the emerging wave of digital humanities.
