“America The Story of Us” tells the extraordinary story of how America has evolved, using CGI animation, dramatic recreations and thoughtful insights from some of America’s most respected artists, business leaders, academics and intellectuals. It’s an in-depth look at the people, places and things that have shaped the nation, and the tough and thrilling adventure that is America’s 400-year history.
Richard Fearon, who graded the series along with fellow colorist Graeme Hayes, said: “We started out trying to come up with a series look, but we very quickly found that the grade for the early settlement section, for example, wouldn’t fit in with the look back at the 1929 Wall St crash. Therefore the grade was evolved depending on what was going on in the story, which is nice as it allows you to have different looks within each episode.”
Prime Focus’ Phitz Hearne and Rada Danilovic were responsible for the audio work including mixing and sound design. “There was a lot of sound design required for the dramatic reconstructions so we sourced a lot of sound effects that are of the time, such as British canons and muskets for the battle scenes,” said Phitz.
