Lincoln: The Fiery Trial


This award winning video was created for Chicago History Museum’s: Lincoln Transformed.  In 7 minutes, this video tells the complex narrative of how Abraham Lincoln’s views on slavery evolved towards freeing the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation. We researched, developed the story treatment and wrote the script.  We brought the story to life and created a cinematic experience by animating historical photos and art, as well as, directing voice actors to play important historical figures from Abraham Lincoln to Frederick Douglass.
