Exhibit Media - opening May 20!

Our team worked on an expansive exhibit exploring the fascinating history of the Outer Banks, an area chillingly known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic.”  Through exhaustive research, content development, and complex interactive programming, we sought to bring maritime tales of tragedy and heroism to life. Our journey took us to historical archives across the US, France, and Germany, to unearth captivating stories and rare artifacts, and located the first US Coastal Survey map, presented to Thomas Jefferson in 1806.  Filming took us to the USS Monitor Center and across coastal North Carolina to enrich the project with scientist interviews and behind-the-scenes of maritime conservation.
