Ebony Fashion Fair: Johnson Publishing Company


Zero One created a variety of video pieces for Chicago History Museum’s: Ebony Fashion Fair, an exhibit which told the history of Ebony Magazine’s Fashion Fair.  This video was part of an installation which told the story of the John, Johnson, the Johnson Publishing Company and the creation of Ebony Magazine.  This video was projected onto a corporate boardroom table, in which 5 people could sit around the table to watch the video at their seats.   We researched the history, developed a story treatment and wrote a script based on John Johnson’s autobiography. We directed a voice actor to narrate the video as John Johnson himself.
