A Few Testimonials:

FRIENDS OF THE NATIONAL WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL

On behalf of the Friends of the National World War II Memorial, we thank Robert Child so much for his wonderfully informative and fascinating presentation during today’s monthly virtual education conference. And, thank him for the terrific discussions that followed! 

It was a great honor and privilege to have Robert provide our audience with an eye-opening glimpse of the extraordinary service and “Immortal Valor" of the “The Black Medal of Honor Recipients of World War II.” I especially appreciated the important discussions of the Wreath 11 — a tragedy known by too few. The service and sacrifices of African Americans during WWII is such an important legacy to preserve and to share with all Americans, in particular our younger generations. 

We are grateful to him for sharing his time, knowledge, and expertise with us!

BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY


Film producer and director Rob Child gave a very moving and powerful presentation to the Binghamton University Forum, www.binghamton.edu/binghamtonforum  on the making of his film “The Wereth Eleven.”  The audience was so engaged in his talk that you could hear a pin drop – something not often experienced at Binghamton University Forum programs.  He has a way of making the audience feel comfortable in his presence.  You will find that he is engaging, knowledgeable and humble.

RIDER UNIVERSITY 

Please extend our gratitude to Robert for his visit to Rider University.  We pride ourselves on exposing students to real professionals and Robert's discussion of his experiences  was invaluable for them.  His insights into ingenuity in modern filmmaking was particularly interesting given the changing landscape of film production and distribution.  I hope with his busy schedule that Robert is able to join us again in the future to share his knowledge with our students.

All the best,

Dr. Shawn P. Kildea

THE SOLEBURY SCHOOL 

Robert Child spoke to an assembly of students ranging from 7th to 12th grade on October 2. He gave us an in-depth  glimpse into the world of movie making, directing, and the in-depth research that goes into an historical documentary. He was an excellent speaker. Robert took the time to capture our students' attention with his historical knowledge as well as his film documentaries. All of the video clips were very interesting.  Rob was very thorough as well as adding levity to his presentation. I would ask him to speak again. He was great!
