June 2, 2007 www.amazon.com Watch the full program: thefilmarchived.blogspot.com In a common technique among makers of documentaries on subjects where principally still material is available, Burns often gives life to still photographs by slowly zooming in on subjects of interest and panning from one subject to another. For example, in a photograph of a baseball team, he might slowly pan across the faces of the players and come to rest on the player the narrator is discussing. This effect, present in many professional and home software applications, was affectionately named "The Ken Burns Effect" in Apple Inc.'s iPhoto and iMovie (Both for Mac and iPhone) software applications. It also figures in the 6th-generation iPod interface in the cover art of the main menu. Of Burns's many film series, The Civil War is generally considered to be his masterpiece. It is narrated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough, with Burns serving as director, producer, co-writer, chief cinematographer, music director and executive producer. The series has been honored with more than 40 major film and television awards, including two Emmy Awards, two Grammy Awards, the Producer of the Year Award from the Producers Guild of America, a People's Choice Award, a Peabody Award, a duPont-Columbia Award, a DW Griffith Award, and the $50000 Lincoln Prize, among dozens of others. The nine episodes explore the Civil War through personal stories and photos. During the creation of the movie ...

Ken Burns, the documentary filmmaker extraordinaire who brought the Civil War to life for so many of us, joined the National Archives in opening a press preview of our latest exhibit: Discovering the Civil War. The exhibit aims to make the Civil War "strange again." While you'll find Manassas and Appomattox, you're just as likely to run across a letter from the Confederate government seeking recognition from Pope Pius IX, or see a facsimile of two separate versions of the 13th amendment--one that outlawed slavery, and one that did not. Part One of the exhibit runs from April 30, 2010 through September 6, 2010
