Higgins Armory Museum
Gunpowder revolutionized not only the medieval battlefield, but the face of Western society, dethroning the knight from his battlefield dominance and helping to usher in modern governmental forms. This project for the Higgins Armory Museum documented the social history of the museum's arms collection, synthesizing the research into a 15-minute video documentary on the rise of firearms and the decline of armor, c. 1300-1800. The documentary features animations and reenacted footage specifically created for the production.
