Nov 14, 2013
The National Geographic Channel's kennedyandoswald.com is a companion website to Killlng Kennedy, Ridley Scott's production based on the Bill O'Reilly bestseller of the same name, starring Rob Lowe as JFK. National Geographic aired the film on Sunday in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Created by Mullen and Mediahub, the site syncs with the movie during live airings allowing the viewer to have a second-screen experience that delves deeper into the story.
Content includes the video of the live-on-TV assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald in the basement of the Dallas Police Department, as well as a video and poetry reading of Alan Seeger's "Rendezvous with Death" , a poem that JFK carried with him throughout his tour of duty in WWII, which is used to dramatize the tragic intersection of Kennedy and Oswald. Other videos include Marilyn Monroe's classic "Happy Birthday" rendition.
Other features include faux-3D scenes, wide explorable panoramic takes on classic photographs and other audio, video and photos relating to the assassination.
