HIST 427: “UMW Blast From The Past” Silent Film

About Our Project

Over the past few weeks, my table group mates and I have been working hard on creating a video for our Silent Film project.

After debating between a few ideas, we decided to recreate yearbook photos and scenes from copies of The Battlefield, the University of Mary Washington (formally Mary Washington College) yearbook. We made the creative decision to film part of the movie in black and white, and part of the movie in color, in order to differentiate between flashback and contemporary scenes.

I think it’s safe to say that we had a lot of fun creating our video! After a long day of filming and editing this past weekend, our video is finally ready!
