Building Bridges between Books and Movies: Randy Testa of Walden Media
Tuesday, January 22, 2008 –
7:30 p.m. – NEW LOCATION–GASSON HALL, BOSTON COLLEGE
Randy Testa, Vice President of Education for Walden Media, travels the country talking with educators and audiences about such films as Hoot; The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Because of Winn-Dixie; How to Eat Fried Worms; Charlotte’s Web; and Bridge to Terabithia.
Walden Media’s mission in making these movies is to create faithful, high-quality film adaptations of beloved children’s literature. Mr. Testa will help us ponder that tricky term–“faithful”–and will show clips of Walden films, including preview clips of Prince Caspian, scheduled for a May ’08 release.
