The Salem Witch Trials

Sometimes the more challenging a project, the more creative the results. This series is proof. The History Channel came to us with an impossible task: take complex historical topics, explain them in a fresh, engaging way, and do it for almost no money. Our concept: find one of those professors that can really make a topic come alive, then animate their story on a digital chalkboard. The result is not quite like anything you’ve ever seen. This is one of eight videos in the series. The rest can be found here.
