When I started working on this project, I had no idea precisely how little I  actually knew in specifics about the Civil War. My prior knowledge can basically be summed up as follows: North v. South, slavery, Lincoln, Lee, Gettysburg, Gettysburg address &c.

So once I was thrust neck-deep into this specific battle, I was in awe of the wealth of history and depth of narrative that was available. The Civil War was the first nation-wide event in U.S. History to have first-person narratives paired with rich photographic imagery. We took full advantage of that while putting this together, and it was fascinating to do so.

This is the first of several ‘episodes’ we’ll be putting together on Minnesota’s involvement with the war, so I’ll have a lot more learning and discovering to do…

Just learned that Martha Reeves of Martha and the Vandellas will be touring the 1968 Exhibit today. I hope she sits down with the Music Trip I helped put together and has a little fun.

For those who, unlike Martha, cannot get to the exhibit in St. Paul before it closes in February, TPT’s Almanac produced this handy walkthrough.

Well, The 1968 Exhibit is up and running. We had a fantastic opening party last Thursday evening, with hundreds of patrons coming through to check out the show. The crowds continued coming all through the weekend, giving all the media pieces I worked on a good work out. 

Pictured above are the introductory lobby, the projections in the Huey helicopter, the Chicago DNC piece, and the 1968 Music Trip quiz show, respectively.

The whole project was a great joy to work on and gave me the chance to meet and produce work alongside a fantastic crew of people. I also learned a thing or two about history, which I suppose is always a plus. 

So if you’re in the area, groove on over to The Minnesota History Center and check out the exhibit. Your vibes will thank you.

The 1968 Exhibit timeline, for which I edited all the video content is now live and viewable online! Click-through the image above to experience the events of ‘68.
This was a fantastic and fun project to work on, getting to sift through hours and hours of archive footage and crafting these events into concise bursts of video. The bulk of my time working on the ‘68 Project has been on these short videos, so I hope you enjoy them!
Now, I need to get back to working on the Music Quiz! The show opens in less than a month!
