Free Family Movie Night a Success!

Last Saturday’s Free Family Movie night, co-sponsored by the Milford Education Foundation, Milford Recreation, Milford Prevention Council, New Standard Institute, and First Choice College Placement, was a huge success!

About 150 people attended the event at the Fowler Field Rotary Pavilion—on what was arguably one of the nicest evenings of the summer—bringing their chairs and blankets to enjoy the animated feature, How to Train Your Dragon. The evening was led by a live video interview with Los Angeles-based animator, Bill Tessier, who worked on the film.  Bill gave an overview of how production works, his role in the film and how young people can prepare for a career in animation. Kids and parents alike enjoyed the film, and even those with a bit less of an attention span had fun running around!

Thank you to everyone who came and, to those who missed it, be sure to join us next time!
