National Museum of American History Film Fellowship in Partnership with American University Graduate School of Communication

The National Museum of American History (NMAH) has a track record of innovative and successful electronic outreach. Through innovative and appropriate uses of technology, the Department of New Media facilitates interaction with the museum’s exhibitions, collections, and programs, both inside and outside the walls of the museum. Integral to NMAH’s strategy is striving for excellence in leveraging museum collections and expertise to share timely, engaging stories about the American experience through digital media. Increasing capacity to use short-form online video to tell stories about American history, the national collections, and the staff who work there is an important part of this strategy.

- Demonstrated ability to plan and manage the production process
