Class of 1985 | BobChats with Bill Henry ’85

BobChats are opportunities where we will welcome classmates to present on various topics.  Our goal is to get as many classmates involved as we can — allowing us to come together to learn from each other and, above all, to bring our class even closer together. 

Bill Henry ’85 is our next guest speaker and will take a deep dive into the history of film editing from the 1980s until today. You’ll also learn the backstory to some iconic scenes from your favorite shows or movies.
