The USS Midway Museum

Location of Midway

Video Production

Impact Communications partnered with the USS Midway Museum to design, fabricate, and produce their largest permanent exhibit to date, Battle of Midway: Six Minutes that Changed History.

Featured in the exhibit is “Location of Midway”- a video that conveys how geography played a pivotal role in the 1942 battle and why the location of Midway Atoll made it such a coveted prize for both sides of the war.

The video was produced in a historical documentary style using Adobe Premiere, Adobe AfterEffects and Cinema 4D. After many months of research and scriptwriting, Impact acquired historical World War II footage and photographs from the National Archives and the Naval Historical Society. Researchers tracked down veterans as well as children, grandchildren and other relatives of vets to hear first-hand stories and to acquire rare visual assets.

The video was awarded the Bronze Telly Award for outstanding achievement in video production in the category of History/Biography. View the video here.

The USS Midway Museum was ranked #7 in the United States by the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards in the Museum Category. It is the leading tourist destination in San Diego, attracting a broad range of visitors from around the world. The museum’s vision is to become America’s living symbol of freedom.
