Inspired by the Vote
“Working with legends like GBH and American Experience to tell the story of women's suffrage quickly became a mission for Cyberwoven. This extraordinary material inspired new thinking and new technology that enabled us to tell this story in a new way."
GBH’s American Experience documentary, She Resisted, explores the final decade of The Women's Suffrage Movement through powerful images brought to life with color for the first time. She Resisted is not just a website, but an immersive exploration of the moments that moved our nation forward for the better.
Interact with History
Cyberwoven worked closely with renowned photographic colorist Marina Amaral to meticulously restore color to century-old archival stills, and video enhancement experts neural.love to upscale and colorize archival footage. Cyberwoven created an interactive experience for American Experience that takes an intimate look at the women who forever transformed the politics of social and political change in America.
Creating an Engaging Experience
The interactive site created an engaging experience for viewers, and a powerful, custom content management system was created in-house based on GBH's specifications. This digital storytelling platform allowed producers at American Experience to more nimbly produce interactive stories and narratives in the future. In turn, this allowed GBH to expand upon the stories their films introduced.
