“Personal Stories”

MUSEUM OF HISTORY AND INDUSTRY,
SEATTLE, WA

Objective:

Collapse the temporal and physical distance between the visitor and the speaker, giving people a more accessible and personal portal into key events and moments in Seattle’s past.

Services:

Concept development, collaborate with MOHAI staff on content and image research, multimedia and software design and production.

Description:

Recorded histories of people from Seattle’s past come to life, illuminating different points of view and drawing the visitor into moments in time through experiential details of work, play, tragedy, and triumph. To animate first-hand accounts written before the advent of recording technologies, voice actors reenact historical diary entries according to the known age, accent, and spirit of the writer.
