People love movies. History’s the greatest movie ever.

Reinforcing a brand and communicating an institutional mission can sometimes be an arduous slog through a lot of big talk, but when you’re working for a place like MNHS, it’s no problem at all.

This video was a great pleasure to edit and I’m proud to work for this society and to promote all that we do.

Here I am manning camera atop a table in the basement of the former home of Gaytee Stained Glass. Loving that my job allows me to go to such lovely and rich spots in my home state’s history.

Gaytee has since moved but their former owner John Salisbury is donating a few pieces to MNHS Collections, so we went along to document and hear a little bit about the history of stained glass in Minnesota. The space is filled to the brim with beautiful works and I hope they all find loving homes someday.

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…
