Senior Seminar

The Spring 2017 Media Production Senior Seminar class partnered with The John & Annie Glenn Museum to produce a new visitor welcome video for their debut 1962 season. The 20:00 video, titled “John Glenn: An American Hero,” is shown to guests at the beginning of every living history tour. The museum opened for the season in May.

The class traveled around Ohio and to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., ultimately collecting 30 hours and 2,300 files of raw footage. Thank you to Muskingum University, Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, The Ohio State University, NASA Glenn Research Center, featured interview guests and contributors, and The John & Annie Glenn Museum for support of this once-in-a-lifetime historical venture.
