We recently had the pleasure of working with the Lincoln Presidential Foundation, President & CEO Erin Carlson Mast and her team, to film a four-part docuseries; “Warning Signs: Lincoln’s Response to Rising Tensions in the 1850s.”

“We originally reached out to The Storyteller Studios because they were highly rated, award-winning, and local to our main offices. Choosing a local company was important to us. The first project went so well when we had another project, they were our top choice.”

The videos have been well-received by stakeholders of the Foundation, including its funding partner and target audiences.

“The four-part series is a key part of our online educational programming. We have already seen a tremendous response to the videos from many of our target audiences, including students, teachers, public historians, and life-long learners. During the premiere phase, we had a request to circulate the videos in Spanish-language affinity groups online as is. We wanted to do better, so we engaged The Storyteller Studios again to produce versions with Spanish captions.”

We knew the importance of this project to the Foundation and this moment in history. 

“You cannot help but be filled with anticipation when you are about to watch videos for the first time. Even though you know the content, you do not know how it will look, sound, and feel until you experience it yourself. When I first watched the videos, I felt thrilled. There is a tremendous sense of accomplishment thanks to The Storyteller Studios’ ability to bring the best out of everyone. Overall, we had a wonderful and collaborative experience working with The Storyteller Studios.”

“An organization of the caliber of the Lincoln Presidential Foundation could pull collaborators from just about anywhere. It truly is an honor for us to have been invited to do this work with Erin, her team, and the incredible scholars of Lincoln featured in this series. We learned a ton ourselves and we’re grateful to have been a part of helping students of all ages across the nation understand this critical period in American history.”
