Assembly collaborates with Louis Massiah on "Presidentís House"


Production /Post company, Assembly recently collaborated with award-winning documentary filmmaker Louis Massiah on five video installations for the just opened "President's House" memorial / exhibit on Independence Mall in Philadelphia. The five video re-enactments depict what life was like for the enslaved persons living in the Washington household. Working extensively in Adobe After Effects, Assembly partner and editor John Knapich composited green screen narrative material with 3-D computer generated elements created by Edgeworx/NY to create the 20 minutes of video content that are a key component of the installation. "The President's House: Freedom and Slavery in Making a New Nation," is a joint project of the City of Philadelphia and the National Park Service. The exhibit combines architecture, landscaping, video and interpretive text to tell a story of national importance.
