Be Washington Wins Gold at SEMC Technology Competition

Cortina Productions is excited to share that Be Washington: It’s Your Turn to Lead, the interactive theater at George Washington’s Mount Vernon has been awarded top honors at the Southeastern Museum Conference (SEMC) Technology Competition. The SEMC Technology Competition recognizes and rewards excellence in the use of technology and encourages innovation, effective design, accessibility, and creativity in museums across the southeast region.

Be Washington invites visitors to step into Washington’s shoes and experience first-hand, four historical scenarios that Washington faced as both General and President. The interactive theater features a 30 foot, 6k LED wall and 18 touchscreen desks that enable guests to interact with the films. Visitors are able to quickly consult some of Washington’s most trusted advisers and rate their agreement with each advisor. Each scenario ends by asking visitors how they would resolve the situation and lets them compare their choice against that of George Washington’s. Cortina Productions is proud to be a part of the team that helped bring this experience to life.
