Main Street Media produces documentaries, new media, and public outreach activities that explore, inspire, educate and entertain.
Since its founding in 1976, Main Street Media has completed hundreds of productions for public television, corporations and non-profit organizations. Drawn to stories that define our national character, these filmmakers have a special interest in bringing history to life for today’s audiences. They are not opposed to strapping themselves into a Vietnam-era helicopter to gain a new perspective, following in the footsteps of runaway slaves, or sawing a woman in half to understand the power of magic.
When they’re not working in the archives or shooting on location,
you'll find them in their editing room, housed in a Craftsman-style barn
just a block from Main Street. The 1917 structure may seem an unlikely
place for the latest in digital technology, but they believe it’s
the ideal creative environment—complete with woodburning stove.
