Patrick Smith’s Florida is a Land Remembered
The story of one of Florida’s most beloved works of literature, as told by the author’s son through visual storytelling featuring over 50 video clips, special visual and sound effects, music and more. How Patrick Smith researched A Land Remembered for over two years before he could write it, and his thoughts about the “real” Florida.
Rick (Patrick, Jr.) Smith and his wife, Kim Miller, live in Cambria, CA, where they own Panorama Studios, a video and media production company. Rick’s 30 year career in media and video production began with an interest in photography he developed during his youth while living in Florida. He was the director of a media production department at California Polytechnic State University for over 20 years and has worked as director of photography for several film and broadcast television projects, including stop motion animation. Although he still works in media production, Rick has found a new career as a performer/public speaker due to the success of a multimedia show he developed around his father’s life and his popular novels.
This event is funded by Florida Humanities’ Florida Talks program in partnership with the New River Public Library Cooperative.
