Project ‘76™ will employ the talents of Church as writer & director as well as the voice talents of Jean Hetherington and Steve Cook (Spirit of ’76, What Lincoln Killed) two of the voice industry’s best talents. “The concept of Project ‘76™ is very simple” Church said “we will take our already extensive collection of letters, speeches, debates and public acts from the Project ‘76™ timeline of 1765-1865 and dramatize them for audio delivery via mp3 digital downloads. Think of it as iTunes™ for American History buffs.”

“We actually have a newspaper account of Jefferson’s first inaugural.  This let’s us flesh out the entirety of the event and immerse the listener in it, just as though you were there to hear history made.”

Eventually “...we will also begin to produce short films from the same source documents, to further dramatize these amazing and important works” Church explained. The Project ‘76™ process begins with “culling the source material together as a text and graphic page” and then creating an informative narrative such as the era the piece comes from, the author’s title at the time and the contemporary events surrounding the work.

Church gives as an example the First inauguration of President Thomas Jefferson. “We actually have a newspaper account of Jefferson’s first inaugural describing his walk up to capitol Hill, the cannons fired in his honor and the overflow crowd in the House chamber that could barely hear him speak. This let’s us flesh out the entirety of the event and immerse the listener in it, just as though you were there to hear history made.”

Project ‘76™ will be featured, to start on Church’s home site at www.mikechurch.com and will be available for real-time streaming or download for archiving and listening. “Founders Pass” members to the site will have access to all Project ‘76™ productions and each one will also be available as individual downloads starting at $1.99. Each Project ‘76™ feature will accompany its original source document-text version.
