Based on Aperture’s track-record of creating innovative and one-of-a-kind media experiences, our team was contracted to create a variety of A/V experiences for the new White House Visitor Center. One of the key media productions is a state-of-the-art interactive about The White House itself – the goal of this production is to immerse visitors in the rich history of this iconic building and to provide a “virtual tour” that allows visitors to explore the building and the grounds.
This new center is expected to have over 1 Million visitors per year, making it one of the ‘”must see” attractions for any visit to Washington, D.C.
Tuskegee Large Screen Film Wins First Place NAI Award

This highly competitive annual award recognizes the best interpretive media produced in a calendar year.
The Tuskegee Airmen: Sacrifice & Triumph tells the dramatic story of the Tuskegee Airmen – the first African- American military aviators who fought heroically in World War II.
The film takes audiences on a highly visual journey with the use of “feature quality” reenactments, stunning footage of aerial combat that combines both live-action shooting of P-51’s, computer animation, and emotional interviews.
US Army Gold Star Pin Campaign – New Spot Released
Aperture Films is honored to produce several spots to build awareness about the Army’s Gold Star Pin Program. For this national campaign our firm secured acclaimed actor Gary Sinise (Forrest Gump, Apollo 13) to narrate and act as a spokesperson.
Although established by an Act of Congress in 1947, the Gold Star Pins are still widely unrecognized by the public, and are issued to the immediate family of service members killed in combat or during active duty.
The new 30-second spot – The Pledge – unfolds with actual recipients of the Gold Star Pins rather than actors. The end result is a composite of powerful and inspirational stories of courage, sacrifice, resilience, and love of country.
