Project Description

This rich and complex 90-minute tour includes primary narration, on-site interviews with subject matter experts, archival audio recordings, character voice readings, stock music and sound effects. The enormity of the project conceptually as well as logistically was daunting. The client wanted to delve deeply into the “meaning” of Mt. Rushmore as well as address many of its controversial topics.

“None of this could have been possible without the expertise, the personalities and professionalism of Q Media Productions. We give the utmost praise to Stasha Boyd, Mike Lutz and John Pelkey in working beside us during this process.”

- Debbie Ketel, Publications Manager, Mt. Rushmore History Association
